Rooted in the mission of Woodstock Day School, Robin’s Fund was created to continue the diversity, equity, and inclusion work of Robin Shepley-Shornstein, the school’s cherished Librarian and educator for over 24 years.
“Books are sometimes windows, offering views of worlds that may be real or imagined, familiar or strange. These windows are also sliding glass doors, and readers have only to walk through in imagination to become part of whatever world has been created or recreated by the author. When lighting conditions are just right, however, a window can also be a mirror. Literature transforms human experience and reflects it back to us, and in that reflection we can see our own lives and experiences as part of a larger human experience…”Rudine Sims Bishop
