YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - Three District One Schools were thrilled to learn they were chosen for a library refresh.
Accordingly, in a press release, the schools were chosen by the nonprofit Kids Need to Read.
Furthermore, on Friday, September 16, G.W. Carver and James B. Rolle Elementary Schools and Fourth Avenue Junior High School received a generous donation of new library books.
For further context, a library refresh is an opportunity to replace old and outdated books with fresh, new titles that students are inspired to read.
Additionally, District One's Library Coordinator, Amanda Coltman, participated in the selection of the titles and topics for the school's libraries.
Then, she identified several areas of improvement, such as increasing books in Spanish.

At the same time, each student also received a Highlights activity book to take home.
In total, more than 1,900 new books valued at almost $14,000.00 had been donated by Kids Need to Read.
Coltman states, “This donation represents a big investment in the future of Yuma's children. Our District One family deeply appreciates this contribution from Kids Need to Read as they help us ensure a bright future for our students.”
