Laundry Center Encouraging Kids to Pick Up a Book

On average, kids spend 2-3 hours per week inside laundromats.

To help pass the time, and more importantly, promote literacy in an area with a high functional illiteracy rate, Lakeside Laundry Equipment’s Rex Anderson decided to bring a library to where the kids are.

As part of the LaundryCares Foundation, children at Heights Laundry Center in University Heights can hone their reading skills while their families do laundry.

In this video, Anderson sits down with WKYC’s Leon Bibb to discuss the LaundryCares program and how Heights Laundry Center is encouraging kids to pick up a book.
