Come Join Me at My 2nd Annual Summer Reading Book Fair!
I’m pleased to announce that I am preparing for the 2nd Annual Book Fair to provide books to underserved children in Trenton. We need to improve literacy outcomes among our children and prevent the summer learning loss, and one of the ways to do that is to make sure our children have more books in their homes. Because of your generosity last year, we were able to provide free bags of books to the children at the Trenton Housing Authority at our fun-filled book fair. We are looking forward to the event in July. If you have any gently used children’s books you would like to donate, please deliver to my office Monday-Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. before July 2. Thank you so much!
