Follett Educational Services Boosts Costa Rica Project

Follett Educational Services has donated 348 Spanish-language books, valued at $4,565, to aid Reader to Reader’s Beyond el Campo project. The project builds school library resources in rural Costa Rica.

We are extremely grateful for Follett Education Services’ generous donation.

Follett sent the following note:

"Follett Educational Services (FES) is proud to be a participant in Reader to Reader’s Beyond el Campo project. The Spanish language books donated will provide additional resources for students in need, and will help those students become closer to achieving their educational goals. "Along the way, it is our hope that the books inspire an enduring passion for reading and learning” says Cornell Rollins, Vice President of Marketing at FES. “For over 130 years, FES has strived to make the difference in the lives of K-12 students and is excited to partner with Reader to Reader to help equip the classrooms in Costa Rica with the tools they need to encourage success.”
