In addition to the new bookcases, the funding will provide First Teachers literacy workshops at each of the six schools to educate and inspire parents to read aloud with their children everyday.

"JPMorgan Chase places great value in education and will continue to invest in creative programs that keep kids engaged," said Antonio Manning, Regional Executive, West/Southwest, Global Philanthropy, JPMorgan Chase & Co.

The $25,000 investment from JPMorgan Chase & Co., will continue the expansion of the San Jose Elementary School Library Initiative, which was first launched in 2005, to Franklin McKinley School District.  With earlier funding investments from the Applied Materials Foundation, Cisco Systems, Junior League of San Jose, The Summit League, and Yahoo, BMAB has placed a Bookcase Library in every kindergarten classroom in Alum Rock Unified School District, Luther Burbank School District, and San Jose Unified School District.  To date, investment funding has provided 220 Bookcase Libraries in 27 elementary schools and 80 First Teachers workshops to parents and caregivers of the children enrolled in these school sites.  In 2010 BMAB will provide all kindergarten classrooms in each of the Franklin McKinley School District's 14 elementary schools, with a Bookcase Library and a First Teachers workshop for parents and caregivers of students.
