Books: An Update

An Update

As a result of the generosity of one, more books were delivered to the grateful staff of the county library, and in turn, to the waiting hands of children determined to complete the summer reading assignment.

The number of those on the waiting list still far exceeds the number of books available. If you can help in any way, please leave a comment.

A little often means a great deal to those with none.

Thank you!

Update: June 22, 2005

Though many (including yours truly) thought it an impossible task 10 days ago, there are now enough books (if all are returned promptly after the designated lending time) for each and every student to read in time to complete the assignment.

The number of books donated by individuals has been multiplied. The school has fulfilled its commitment and delivered additional copies of the books to the county library.

While some ponder citizens and/or administrators in powerful positions playing a hand in this matter, and others surmise the shame and humiliation garnered by efforts of individuals prompted the rapid response by the school, I prefer to believe honor and a common cause dictated it.

I would be remiss if I failed to thank one very special person who had copies of all of the books delivered to my office for the county library today, and even more so if I failed to thank you all.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!
