Paint Branch Elementary School students recently received more than 1,000 new books and a revitalized library nook, through The Heart of America Foundation READesign program and a $25,000 grant from FedEx.
“It’s a real treasure for our students,” Curry Rose Hoskey, the school’s library media specialist told The Gazette. “It’s putting books in the hands of children, which is what my career is all about.”
FedEx volunteers unveiled the redesigned corner of the library on Tuesday, March 27. The volunteers helped arrange new books on shelves and assembled furniture in the freshly painted reading corner before distributing books for students to take home.
