Named after Isabelle Cummins, the daughter of Irish immigrants, Isabelle's Book Club is designed to strengthen communities by increasing graduation rates, lower crime rates, and increasing the potential of employment simply through the enjoyment of reading.
Isabelle Cummins shared her love of reading with family members by giving books as a Christmas tradition and encouraging family members to read them. Generations have continued the book-giving tradition and share her love of reading.
She has earned two college degrees and continues her love of learning in her mid-eighties. The organization was given her name as a tribute to the much loved aunt and to further her legacy of readers.
