Throughout this week, NC librarian Lisa Wheeler facilitated a free book give away for students. She and her assistant, Karen Morrell, donated books to benefit anyone. “It originated from my moving this summer and my kids wanting to get rid of a lot of their books. My assistant, Karen Morrell wanted to do the same with her kids books. So we came up with this pile of books that we didn’t want to give away to just anybody we wanted to benefit any students at the school who enjoy reading,” Wheeler said. She plans on asking teachers and students if they would like to donate books of their own.
