Books on Break

Once again this year, Books on Break was a tremendous success. As Rotarian volunteers circulated the space that was set up as a book “store”, they could hear enthusiastic children saying things like, “Shhh, I’m trying to read!” and “I can’t wait to get home and read my new books.” 31 Rotarians and friends put in 122 volunteer hours to make the event successful. The theme of “Reading Connects the World” was depicted on the backpack that each child was given courtesy of Durham Rotary Club. 3,520 abooks were distributed at Y.E. Smith Elementary School. Thank you to our fearless leaders for their dedication and support.
