Thanks to all who guaranteed more books for more kids in Georgetown County

We finished Palmetto Giving Day just shy of our goal of $10-thousand dollars. Some checks have come in putting us over the top . It was our first try and we are very happy with the results.

Our budget will double for the next school year allowing us to not only provide books to all second and third graders but to add Kindergarten and first grade as well.

It means more Pillows and Books for Pre K kids giving those young readers an early taste of having their own books
