On October 17th, we received a very special Official Citation from the Mayor's Office and the Bridgeport City Council for the work that Books 4 Everyone has done in 2015-2016 to provide over 36,000 books to schools and community organizations in Bridgeport. I had expected to give a brief talk on what we do in Bridgeport, but they turned the tables on me and showed that they were very much aware and appreciative of our efforts. Many of the (volunteer) Council Members are involved in the schools and are very passionate about improving childhood literacy.
We want to pass along their thanks to all of the people and organizations that donate the books to make this possible. We look forward to continuing and expanding our efforts in Bridgeport in the new year.
