Belmont University, in Nashville, TN is hosting their 3rd Better World Books book drive this fall, in cooperation with their on campus bookstore to benefit the National Center for Family Literacy. Tim Stewart, The Belmont Volunteers for Literacy Adviser, helped put together a hot chocolate and cookies kick of celebration last week to raise awareness about the campus wide book drive project.
This group is particularly impressive because they utilize their book drive scholarship to fund a Family Literacy Day. This annual spring time event organized by student volunteers is open to the community, and invites children to receive free books, participate in reading circles, and make reading related arts and crafts. Better World Books is a proud sponsor of the event.
It is amazing to see how much of a resounding impact one group of committed students can have through their commitment to literacy related service initiatives!
