Amy Franks

Learning Partnerships Manager

Amy joined the team at Book Harvest in 2018 because she believes fully in the mission and because she gets to experience over and over again the sheer delight of children discovering books they are excited to own and read. When she isn’t working, she likes to read; refinish furniture; cook; work out; try new local eateries; and spend time with family, friends, and her cat who thinks she’s a dog. Amy is a member of the National Afterschool Association, a board member with NC CAP, a committee member of Durham’s Campaign for Grade-Level Reading, a member of the International Literacy Association, and a fellow of the 2017-2019 National Institute of Out of School Time National Afterschool Matters.

Leeya, my five year-old niece, was having a debate with her seven year-old sister about what I do, and she adamantly declared, "Auntie Amy is a book worker!" It is the best job title I have ever had.
