Visit to Rochester International Academy
Several members of the Altrusa club visited the Rochester International Academy to deliver new and gently used books to Julianne Wise, school Librarian.
Our own club member Karen, Literacy Committee Chairperson, purchased many of the gently used books from community library sales and thrift shops. Karen has her pulse on what is needed for the libraries and where to find the books.
In April, the club held a Book Shower to support School 42 and Rochester International Academy libraries. The guests and members donated over 300 books for this event as part of the club's Sammy Pierson Literacy Project. The club also purchased new books for the RIA library that were on the most needed list compiled by Julianne.
