IC Gives the Gift of Reading

Contributed by Michael McGreevey on 12/13/2006 

Ithaca College is pleased to contine our tradition of collecting NEW children's books at our faculty and staff holiday luncheon (Thursday, December 21st). We are proud to be a part of the Family Reading Partnership’s (FRP) ongoing efforts to create a culture of literacy in our local area.

Through this simple yet powerful act, we can help to ensure children’s books are a special part of the the routines and traditions of family life for all children in our community. We know that books increase in value when they are given as gifts, especially when they come as part of the holidays, and as gifts from a parent.

Give the Gift of Family Reading is a children’s book drive for the holidays, designed to provide beautiful new books for parents of low-income families to give to their children as holiday gifts.
