Annual Pre-K-8 Book Drive

Grades > Pre-K to 12

The Service Committee is excited to announce our annual book drive. During the assembly last week, committee members shared information that  2 out of 10 adults in Rome/Floyd County cannot read, or can read very little. Research shows that one of the most powerful ways to help children read is to have books in their homes, and many in Floyd County do not.  

The book drive runs from Jan. 27th to Feb. 5th. We are asking families to clean off their bookshelves and donate gently used or new books. Our goal is to collect 1,750 books. If we reach the goal, we will earn a Tiger Day/PJ day. In the spirit of friendly competition, we are offering an additional Tiger Day to whichever team brings in the most books (Pre-K to 2, grades 3-5, or grades 6-8).

Please help us reach our goal, and help the families in Floyd County to be able to enjoy books in their homes.
