Program provides free books to children

The books were donated through the N.C. Department of Public Instruction’s Give Five Read Five program, which is designed for businesses and community members to donate five new or gently-used children’s books to elementary schools. According to a release from the state, reading five books or more during the summer break helps prevent elementary students from losing literacy skills.

"We’re very excited," Hurst said of the program. "It’s an honor. We were lucky enough to have Lenovo donate four or five computers to us earlier this year, so this is just a wonderful companion to that. The Give Five program is a wonderful program."
