MANCHESTER, NH — A few months ago we initiated a book drive to collect gently used books. Thanks to the generosity of our community we were able to hold a day of reading in partnership with NEP House of Praise, and Pastor Mark Choate, who graciously allowed us to use the church.
I continued to get calls from people who had books to donate, so we are hoping to have several more events. Our intention is to make sure all children that are in need of books have access to them. We also want to work with the parents, especially in our most underserved communities, to make them a part of reading to their children and engaging them in their education.
