The Rotary Club of Southwest Shreveport has donated 1,138 books to Shreve Memorial Library to be used in “Every Child Ready to Read” workshops.
The workshops encourage parents to help get children ready to read at an early age. Each family that attends the workshop will be given a free book to take home.
“The Rotary Club of Southwest Shreveport is pleased to promote literacy and reading among parents and children,” said club President David Wilson.
