Northfield Rotary Supports the Northfield Literacy Initiative

November 1, 2013

Of the last two years, the Northfield Literacy Initiative has built and placed 3 collection boxes at the elementary schools and at the NCRC in the vestibule.  Many children’s books have been collected thus far.  Our best guess is 1000 books at this point.  The books have been sorted, and now they are being distributed throughout the community through community centers, directly to families, and via bookshelves at area businesses.  We purchased 3 of these bookshelves as well.  The Early Childhood Initiative Coalition coordinates the collection, sorting, and distribution. This past weekend, the Northfield News ran an article covering our progress.
