Thanks to NBA Star LeBron James, Akron Public School Has One of the Largest E-Libraries in Country

School Library Journal

Akron Public Schools is like many public urban school districts in the country — lacking funding to achieve performance goals that need investments in technology. With Ohio’s Race to the Top goal to"“reduce performance gaps by 50 percent in reading," the LeBron James Family Foundation and its Wheels for Education program, started by Akron native and Miami Heat NBA star LeBron James, has given Akron Public Schools one of the largest e-library sites in the country. Completely online, the e-library can be accessed by any Akron student, from elementary to high school, each with his or her own log in information.
