Hannah Laman, 15, of Loveland, Ohio, a freshman at Loveland High School, co-founded a charity called “Adopt a Book” to benefit kids in need, and since 2011 has led initiatives that collected and distributed more than 130,000 new and gently-used children’s books to more than 100 locations in the U.S. and abroad. Hannah also established and now maintains a Little Free Library in her own community, and donated a number of bookshelves and “reading buddies” to help kids and child organizations create personal reading spaces.
