Many thanks to Annette Davis at the Davis Foundation and Mary Coupens Reading Endowment for funding our 4th annual Free BookFair at Founder's Classical Academy of Mesquite. Not only did each student choose a book of their own but a bonus book about various American Heroes was gifted to the K-2nd graders! We appreciate Annette and Mary's commitment to encouraging reading among the young! This is one of the few schools we serve that has middle and high school students. It was truly a delight to see students of all ages excited about reading! Special Thanks, also, to Adrienne Freas (pictured) who introduced us to Annette Davis. ... See MoreSee Less

We are so excited! Because of the generous donations from Reading Is Fundamental (RIF) and Regions Bank, over 500 children in areas where Remote Learning is required will be receiving a NEW book with their learning materials. This is so exciting because many of these children have few books at home and with access restricted to school libraries, they really need resources at home! A ray of hope in uncertain times! ...
