Birthday party delivers books

Beckett on delivery day with PS 46 Principal Karyn Nicholson

We have got to hand it to two of ReadThis’ youngest members, Beckett and his friend, Eli, who threw a joint birthday party and asked their friends to bring books to donate to a public school in New York that needed them. ReadThis directed them to P.S. 46, Edward Blum school in Fort Greene, which has a nice new library, but serves one of the lowest income communities and is greatly in need of books, particularly nonfiction.

Over 50 books were collected — a great gift to the school. Thanks too to Beckett’s mother, Lindsay, who delivered the books to the school.

If anyone else would like to hold a birthday book party and donate books to a school, hospital, or literacy center in need, please get in touch with ReadThis at readthisorg@gmail.com.
