Members of the Chi Tau Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Inc., which serves Rockdale and Newton counties, recently donated books to four local schools as part of the 2018 National African American Read-In.

The sorority gave books to the media centers at CJ Hicks and Shoal Creek elementary schools in Rockdale County and Porterdale and Fairview Elementary Schools in Newton County on March 8. Volunteers also presented certificates to the teachers and students who participated in the Read-In event, which was conducted on Feb. 5 during Black History Month. The book donations and certificates officially closed out the Read-In.

This year marks the 28th annual celebration of the national event, which promotes diversity in children’s literature, shines a spotlight on African American authors, and encourages young people to read.
