Book donation benefits school system

December 4th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Through the Subaru Loves Learning Book Donation Event, Thomas Subaru donated 100 books to the Allegany County Public Schools.  This program was designed to donate outstanding, prize-winning books to schools with the goal of engaging young learners in the world of science and inspire them to want to learn more. The donated books are designed to supplement existing curriculum by supporting K-12 science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education, while also helping to build reading and literacy skills.

All books have been awarded the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and Subaru Books & Films (SB&F) Prize for Excellence in Science Books.  This prize celebrates outstanding science writing and illustration for children and young adults.  The prizes are meant to encourage the writing and publishing of high-quality science books for all age groups.  To support classroom learning, the AAAS also publishes classroom-ready, standards-based lesson plans that help teachers integrate these outstanding books into their teaching. The donated books will be divided among the public school libraries where teachers and students can borrow them individually or in groups through library loans.

Lisa Stevenson, Administrative Coordinator of Library Media Programs, would like to thank Thomas Subaru for this partnership, especially Shelly Gray (Director of Marketing and E-Commerce) and Chris Carpenter (General Manager).
