    Thanks to our dedicated crew of enthusiastic volunteers, we just completed a very successful Winter 2016 book distribution. The students as well as the volunteers loved the variety of books!

    Our grand total of books distributed was 5,143. This includes 4,342 books for the kindergarten through third-grade students (as well as pre-schoolers in three of our schools), a book for each of our 54 student helpers, a book for each of our 214 kindergarten through third-grade classroom libraries and a bonus “grab bag” book for some of our third graders.

    We’re already planning for our Spring distribution and new books have already been ordered. Our school visits are scheduled for April 8 to May 16.
