Hadley-Murphy to collect books for literacy groups

Donations of new or gently used books will be collected at either campus of Hadley-Murphy Elementary School between March 16th and March 23rd as a school project to help two literacy groups.

Books collected during the drive will be donated to the Family Literacy Center of Lapeer and Ethiopia Reads. The Family Literacy Center is a local non-profit organization that helps adults learn or improve their reading and assists school-age children and their parents to improve reading and literacy.

Ethiopia Reads is a non-profit organization focused on improving the lives of Ethiopian children by fostering a love of education through the use of books.

The books can be for children or adults, fiction or non-fiction, but should be in good condition, said Lisa Schultz, a parent volunteer who is coordinating the drive. Cash donations will also be accepted and used for the cost of shipping books as necessary.

“We invite the community to support this worthy cause and drop your spare books off at either school during the week of March 16th to March 23rd,” Schultz said.
