Every June our Great Book Giveaway takes us to five different communities including Adams County! Volunteers read books to kids, and afterward every child present gets to select a book to keep. The books were collected during a community-wide book drive in the spring.
The Great Book Giveaway was created to inspire children to keep reading – and learning – during the summer months. Kids who read during summer are less likely to fall behind when the new school year begins. All children and youth (from ages birth to 12 years), parents, grandparents, caregivers, and day care providers were invited to attend this free event.
