This year’s Homecoming service initiative to collect new or gently used children’s books was an outstanding success! The Belmont community received more than 1,000 books that will be donated to Book’em. Bridges to Belmont students brought in more books than any other group on campus!
Book’em empowers Nashville’s underprivileged children by fostering a love of books and reading. Book’em will give books to children who visit six reading circles at this year’s Family Literacy Day on April 2 from 1 – 4 p.m. at E.S. Rose Park.
