A Border school’s efforts to improve its library will be boosted by a donation of some brand new books.
For a second year, Glenroy Public School is the beneficiary of the Dymocks Books for Kids campaign (August 4-12), where $1 from the sale of every children’s book is given to the book chain’s literacy programs.
Dymocks Children’s Charities will double the value of funds raised by Dymocks Albury in new books for the school library.
Glenroy teacher librarian Ruth Grogan said the school appreciated the assistance.
“We like to present as wide a range as possible, the more books we can get from different sources, the better it is for the kids,” she said.
“There’s a good variety of new, but there’s also a lot of old ones so we just sort of try to regenerate those as we go along.”
Dymocks Albury franchise owner Judith Doughty said she’s delighted to help.
“We know that reading is an essential life skill and supporting children’s literacy is a key component of our community engagement,” she said.
