This inaugural event will raise money to provide new library books for TCS schools. On average, a TCS library book is 19 years old. State library enhancement funding was cut in 2008, and was not reinstated until the 2015-2016 school year. Since being reinstated, it is at a severely lower funding level than the 2008 era. If all state library funding was spent entirely on book purchases, most of our libraries could not afford to purchase even one whole book per student. We aim to change that!
Having books readily available that interest you, encourages and enhances stronger reading habits. Your reading habits directly affect the way you learn. Our only goal is to put books in the hands of our students that they want to read.
We invite you participate in our 5k by registering or donating to our Strong Libraries. Strong Schools initiative.
