The Greenwich Alliance for Education ran a very popular free book fair last Wednesday at the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich. This annual book drive is part of Greenwich Reads Together, and Greenwich Academy collected 1,900 books in their middle school to help support this successful event. It promotes childhood literacy by letting kids fill their bags with free books to take home.  Right up our alley here at Books4Everyone!

Many thanks to Julie Faryniarz, Executive Director of Greenwich Alliance for giving us their excess books to distribute elsewhere.  Thanks as well to Don Palmer, Program Director of Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich for providing us with excess backpacks that we'll be taking up to Bridgeport schools.
