Letter: Thank you for book donations

By on February 4, 2010

We want to extend our thanks to Barnes & Noble Booksellers at Geneva Commons and their customers for donating more than 4,000 children’s books to Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley during their Holiday Book Drive.

Many of these wonderful books were given to the children of our adult learners as holiday gifts. Others will be used to help adults read and speak English more effectively during 2010. We are also “spreading the wealth” by sharing your book donations with other non-profit organizations who serve children.

Literacy Volunteers Fox Valley provides free, one-to-one literacy tutoring to adults in St. Charles, Geneva, Batavia, Elburn, Campton Township, LaFox, Lily Lake, Wasco and Wayne. Lessons help people learn to read, write, understand and speak English better.

On average, our adult learners read at a third grade level. Many are parents who want to help their children succeed in school. Your generosity will help our volunteer tutors unlock the wisdom and enjoyment that these books contain for our adult learners and their families.
