Read Across IL-16: Kinzinger Announces Program to Build Local Library Collections
In honor of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and Read Across America Day, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) announced his office’s participation in the Library of Congress Surplus Books Program.
WASHINGTON, DC – In honor of Dr. Seuss’s Birthday and Read Across America Day, Congressman Adam Kinzinger (IL-16) announced his office’s participation in the Library of Congress Surplus Books Program:
“As the son of an elementary school teacher, I was always encouraged to read more and let the stories stretch my imagination. From here to there and everywhere, we know education is critical to giving hope and opportunity to the next generation. And sometimes, it all starts with a good book. I’m grateful to the Library of Congress for sharing their impressive collection with deserving patrons across the country, and I look forward to our office’s participation in this program on behalf of Illinois’ 16th Congressional District.”
The goal of this program is to help build library collections with books, audio material, maps, and more. The Library of Congress has surplus materials not needed for the Library’s own collection, that can be donated to eligible organizations and institutions.
To share this IL-16 opportunity, please see the attached flyer and visit the Congressman’s website here, found under the Constituent Services tab. To learn more about the program, please visit the Library of Congress website here.
