Sandy Catt, Director of Communications and Technology at Longview Public Schools, receives a donation from Brad Ramey, Subaru Sales Manager at Bud Clary, as part of the Subaru Loves Learning campaign. Throughout the month of September, customers filled out donation cards and Bud Clary Subaru donated a new non-fiction educational book to local classrooms.

Here’s a note from Sandy:

Please accept a big “THANK YOU” from Longview Schools for the fabulous selection of non-fiction books for our elementary students. Upon review of the titles and quantities of books, I wanted to let you know how the generous donation will be put to best use.

We are trying to increase availability in classrooms of non-fiction titles so the books are being distributed to classrooms at each of our eight elementary schools consistent with the books’ reading levels. Specifically, all second grade classes will receive a copy of Tiny Creatures; third grade classes a copy of Mission Mars; fourth grade a copy of Keeping Chickens; and fifth grade a copy of Octopus Scientist. We received one copy of How to Clone a Mammoth, and we will send that to the RAL library. We have a some books remaining, and we are sharing them with our education partner, St. Rose School.

This program has been a big boost to our classroom libraries, and we are very appreciative. Again, many thanks!

And here’s a picture of the books before they went out to classrooms:
