Crow Agency Elementary School librarian, Karla Clark, continues to distribute Reading Nation Waterfall books to her school’s youth. The kids are loving their books! Please consider donating books to our partner tribes via their Amazon wishlists on our donation page.
Thank you to our partner, library director, Katie Fountain! Robeson County Public Library will soon be distributing books to the Shining Stars Preschool in Pembroke, NC. More to come when these books are all in the hands of the children!
Our partnerships with local libraries and schools are crucial to getting literacy resources to tribal families and children.
We have some pictures from the Little Free Library give away hosted by the Crow Agency School Librarian Karla Clark. Each child in attendance received a free book to take home and enjoy!
“We have received four gift purchases from donors and would like to share our heartfelt THANKS to Timothy Matonak, Chia Wang, Anthony Chow, and an unknown donor who sent the book “A Child’s Guide to Arctic Birds”. The students were very happy to receive the books and say Thank You very much. More pics to come in the new year as we do our weekly giveaways.” -Karla Clark
