Long Lots Elementary School students love to read. And they love sharing books with others.
The other day, as part of a “Reading Across America” project, students and staff brought in 1,200 new and gently used K-5 children’s books. Bridgeport’s Lighthouse Program will donate them throughout the city. Westport and Bridgeport Police officers, and Connecticut State Police, helped with collection and distribution.
Way to go, Long Lots Lions! (Hat tip: Ned Batlin)
