Milestone: First Book gives

First Book-Clallam County recently announced that the group has given 1,966 new books to nine literacy programs that serve Clallam County children in need.

Children will receive new books that they can keep and own, enabling them to start home libraries they can share with their families.

These book grants were made possible through local 2013 fundraising efforts. Donations were received from the Clallam County Retired School Employees, Port Angeles Wednesday Reading Club, Kiwanis Club of Sequim-Dungeness Valley, Albert Haller Foundation, Women of Dungeness Valley Lutheran Church, the Target Corporation and private donations.
