November 12, 2015 – The Georgia Department of Education and State School Superintendent Richard Woods are working with student-run service organization Change 4 Georgia (C4G) to provide books for school media centers across Georgia.

 

Both organizations have collected donations of reading material appropriate for elementary, middle, and high school students, and C4G members helped sort and package the books for distribution. Superintendent Woods will distribute the books to media centers as he visits schools throughout the state.

 

“Literacy is a crucial component of educational readiness – when students become strong readers, that has a ripple effect on all other aspects of their academic lives,” Superintendent Woods said. “We are always looking for opportunities to promote literacy throughout the state of Georgia and provide resources that will allow students to fall in love with reading.”

 

So far, approximately 2,000 books have been donated to the project.
