Your impact upon school libraries has been tremendous

Dear Reader to Reader,

Wonderful things are happening all over our school district, Gallup-McKinley County Schools. Everyone is talking about Reader to Reader and your fantastic donation of 37,000 books which amount to half a million dollars to our school district.

This donation will give each of our schools 3,000+ books. Our district is the biggest school district in the lower United States. From Tohatchi, NM, to Gallup to Navajo, NM, people are “boggled” by the generosity and amazed by the number of books involved in your gift.

Librarians were lining up at the Gallup Media Center with boxes ready to pack and took away thousands of books…the books did not last long. It was a job to sort and pack pallets of books and by the end of the day the librarians were very tired. What an accomplishment!

The books you sent are now in the special education classes, Spanish classes, Literature classes and every library in the district.

This donation comes at a time when out state legislature is trimming the budget for education. Without your help our libraries would find it hard to make ends meet. As Navajo Pine High School, your program has helped to build our library. With your help Navajo Pine High School library has just been acclaimed by the National Accreditation Committee for 2009.

Your impact upon school libraries has been tremendous.

Thank you Reader to Reader.
