Students Laela and Ali asked to hold a book drive at their school. They then created a flyer to send home to all of the students, placed a sign (they made) in the hallway and counted books as they came in. With help from their teacher Kelly Wolf, Laela and Ali delivered 590 books to Arnot Health that staff members gladly accepted. Arnot employees then shared the books with patients and distributed them among the Family Reading Partnership of Chemung Valley Bright Red Bookshelves throughout the hospital.
Thank you, Laela, Ali, Kelly and those who donated gently-used books!

"A Book on Every Bed" is an activity the Family Reading Partnership of Chemung Valley is promoting to encourage family literacy. Giving books is an exciting way to mark special days for family members. Those special days can be birthdays, the first day of school, days that mark special achievements, holidays such as Valentine's Day--or just a day to say "I am thinking of you." A book on every bed requires only a simple gesture. As gift givers, readers choose and wrap books that would mark holidays or special days for receivers--especially children--then place them on receivers' beds to greet them as their special days begin, ideally on multiple occasions throughout the year!
