OUR BOOKS DON’T GATHER DUST
A teacher friend told me recently of a troubling conversation she had with a school administrator. The teacher, a book lover, was told by the administrator that "books gather dust." Not on the Books-Go-Round! Our most recent numbers bear this out. For the month of October our children's bookmobile visited 72 preschools and day cares. At those schools, 145 story time programs were presented for 1713 children. A whopping 2181 books were borrowed by students and teachers. Our books gather no dust!
