Kristina Vaher, a Junior at GCS and coordinator of our Book Club,  has been working on setting up children’s reading libraries in locations throughout Gaston County for children to have access to books over the summer and after school. She just finished working on the Pharr YMCA this Saturday.

She has just recently been talking to the Boys and Girls clubs and they would also like to have one of the children’s libraries at their facilities. Since this would be five locations, and she puts about 700 books in each location, she needs to collect some more books and that’s where you come in.

We are asking parents if you have any gently used children’s books at home if you would like to donate them to this wonderful cause.

We will have plastic bins in the Elementary Lobby of the school to collect the books.

Attached is a picture so you can see what she is creating in our community and what you can be part of.

Thanks so much!

Elementary Secretary
