This year over 200 learners, families and friends took part in our annual Back To School Story Hours, held at the downtown library and the Fair Oaks Branch Library. We distributed backpacks to all of our school-age students. This year we gave away over 200 backpacks stuffed with much-needed school supplies requested by Redwood City teachers and administration. These backpacks help ensure that Project READ students start off school prepared for success. For our youngest learners, PreK students, went home with a new lunch bag filled with crayons and a board book to encourage the love of literacy at an early age. In addition to backpacks, all families were given a family book and learners were able to self-select books from a variety of titles. It was a great night and a great way to start off the school year!
