Lincoln Education Association's 19th Annual Harvest of Books drive kicks off October 1, and wraps up on the 16.
To participate, you can purchase books at a 25% discount at participating books stores, or mail a donation to Harvest of Books, c/o LEA, 4920 Normal Blvd., Lincoln, NE 68506.
Local book stores participating in the event include Barnes & Noble (both Lincoln locations), Indigo Bridge Books, Gloria Deo, University Bookstore, and Usborne Books at Home.
Since its inception in 1997, Harvest of Books, Inc. has distributed over 156,000 brand-new books to Lincoln's first and second grade students in public, private and parochial schools—a book of their very own to keep. For many children, this ends up being their first “real” book that they get to choose, own forever, take home, and read with their families.
The books will be distributed to first and second graders the week of November 23, and this year they anticipate distributing around 10,000 books.
