Live to Read and Read to Live!

Posted November 26, 2013 in Community Web Exclusives, Greene County

UntitledJefferson-Elementary students “LOVE” to read.  We recently had our first “Ram Reader” book distribution for all students in our building.  As the students enter the art room they see hundreds of brand new books spread over every surface available.  Each child is allowed to choose “just one” book which they can keep to read over and over.  Being able to choose only one, many students are pretty clever about what to select.  They often make arrangements with friends to choose one book and then swap so they can read more than one.  Often times these books are also brought back for our book exchange program in December when they exchange them for a used book someone else has brought in.

As you can see we do “LOVE” to read and this is all made possible through community donors.  We want to thank all those that have generously donated to our program.  Our distributions depend solely on how many donations we receive each year.  This year we were fortunate to receive a grant from the Greene County Foundation.  This was a matching funds grant which allows us to double the amount of books we will be able to purchase.   As a result, we are able to offer twice as many books for children to choose from.

If you would like to donate to our program, send checks to “Ram Readers” Jefferson Elementary.

Reading is a basic tool in the living of a good life.
