Put Books in the Hands of Greenville’s Kids with This Book Drive

Posted on | No Comments

When schools and libraries closed, many of Greenville’s kids lost access to books. But, the folks at Wonderfully Read want to see kids reading, so they are working to increase access to books with a local book drive. The drive will serve all kids infant through high school that are in need of books to keep them reading.
