Books for the Kids
Many schools today are suffering from a critical lack of funds, and the sad reality of these fiscal cutbacks is that school library budgets and new books for the classrooms are often the first victims. The Grand Rapids Kent Optimist Club has made it a priority to do what we can to make sure that the children are not denied an important resource in their education.
In 2013 - 2014 we were happy to donate about 200 books to the Godfrey Elementary School library and classrooms and 30 copies each of 4 new titles of to the Kenowa Hills Central Elementary 5th grade classrooms. Click on the pictures below for more images of the Books for Kids project.
In 2016, we were able to continue rebuilding the Godfrey Elementary School Library by purchasing more than 400 books!
