|Children receive books|
Dozens of children's faces lit up Tuesday afternoon as students from Lenwil Elementary School perused the school's library to grab a handful of books they'll get to keep forever.
For the first time, students in pre-kindergarten through second grade were allowed to pick out five books to take home and keep in their personal library.
The books were provided through the Title 1 Read With Me program. On Tuesday, Lenwil Elementary gave away more than 1,000 books to 207 students.
Principal Edwin Davis watched with pride as students lined up in the library to pick out their books.
A book all about whales was a big hit with the boys while the girls all wanted a butterfly book.
Regardless of what books the children picked out, Davis hopes they will be encouraged to read them along with their parents and any siblings at home.
