0 Read To Shine | "Increase Childhood Literacy"

Community members are distributing books, free of charge, to Aransas County children during the summer. The group, called Read To Shine, has placed fifteen bright red bookcases, stocked with books, in venues around town where families gather, such as laundromats, apartment complexes, doctors' offices, Good Samaritans Center, and St. Vincent de Paul. The goal is prevent "summer slide," by which children, especially economically disadvantaged children, lose reading proficiency during the summer. Those wishing to donate books can do so at ACISD campuses. Those wishing to donate money should send checks to Read to Shine, c/o Friends of the Library, 701 E. Mimosa, Rockport, Texas 78382.
