Rock for Reading
Just had to share the good news!
Rock for Reading a non-for-profit agency in Chicago that donates thousands of books to deserving students throughout the Chicagoland area. Over the Christmas Holidays, Rock for Reading partnered with Borders Bookstore and raised money for a book drive that supplied children with books for their school library and personal libraries at home. The organization has also reached a milestone by donating their 500,000th book to a school library. The Bennett Elementary School Library was the recipient of this honor! The link below will guide you to a short youtube.com video presentation that features Bennett Elementary School students, Librarian, Rozetta Toney, Principal Barbara Ellis and Assistant Principal Roberta Fields.
Many thanks to Rock for Reading for providing much needed books for students within the Chicago Public School System! - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOc37pltHWA
