Lake Tahoe Community College will be hosting a Gift of Literacy event May 25 so each Lake Tahoe Environmental Science Magnet School student receives a nw hardbound book to help spark a lifelong interest in reading.
Among the invited guests who will be reading to local children that day will be two-time Olympic gold medalist freeskier and children’s book author David Wise.
In its pilot year, the Gift of Literacy program will provide approximately 138 kindergarten, first grade and special day students from the magnet school with copies of selected books. Copies will also be provided to all LTUSD elementary school libraries, the South Lake Tahoe Public Library, LTCC’s Roberta Mason Library, and at LTCC programs including the Child Development Center and Tahoe Parents Nursery School.
In addition to receiving free books, magnet school students will spend the day at the college.
