Manchester College students seeking
new children’s books for Akron book
Area residents and teachers are urged to donate new and used children’s
books for redistribution to children in the Akron community. The
Manchester College branch of the Indiana Reading Corps is conducting the
book drive during April, with four Akron collection sites.
College students in the Indiana Reading Corps – the largest children’s
literacy organization in the state – have been tutoring children in
reading at Akron Elementary School for seven years. They plan to return
children’s books collected in the book drive to the community. For more
information about the drive, contact Jennifer
Wilson, MC Indiana Reading Coordinator, at 260-982-5084.
Here are the Akron sites with drop boxes for the books:
Viking Foods,116 E. Rochester St.
Akron Church of God, 303 S. West St.
Webb’s Family Pharmacy, 101 W. Rochester St.
Day Hardware,107 W. Rochester St.
