Video: ‘First Books’ of Lowndes County Building Literacy and Libraries
COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Stephen King said “books are uniquely portable magic”, and thanks to a local organization, some students in Columbus got to take that magic home with them today.
First Book of Lowndes County handed out new books to students at Franklin Elementary. The organization was founded to address one of the main factors affecting literacy-access to books. First Book of Lowndes County distributes high quality books to students in the Columbus and Lowndes County schools.
Mother Goose even stopped by to help the children get started.
