CAP2U School Library Program

The CAP2U School Library Program is a program through which the Children’s Alopecia Project purchases library books about alopecia and being different and donates the books to school libraries when Jeff speaks at your child’s school. According to parents, librarians, principals, and CAP Kids, our CAP2U Library Program benefited children in the following ways:

  1. By teaching children within the school about alopecia areata, thus answering questions, eliminating uncertainty about the nature and unpredictability of the hair loss disease, and ultimately reducing the potential for bullying.
  2. By raising awareness about alopecia areata, particularly when children within the school check the books out of the library and take them home to share with their families and friends.
  3. By building self-esteem in children living with alopecia areata because the donation of books is coming from them, thus bringing them positive attention.
