SPRINGVILLE, NY - Books are special and very much appreciated at League for the Handicapped Preschool Learning Center in Springville.
The school serves children from birth to age eight.
"The kinds of books that are very beneficial to our children have not a great deal of text, but talk about concepts and are very visual and have lots of color," said Christine Lewis, executive director.
Last year, the pre-school received about 150 books from Project Flight. Every child receives a book gift wrapped from Santa to take home and enjoy. Not only do children enjoy the books, but "it's an opportunity for the family to have language experiences and reading experiences with their children," said Lewis.
This year, the need is just as great. "The types of books that they deliver to us are very appropriate for the very young child and early learners."
Friday, April 20, 2012, is the annual Books for Kids drive. You may drop off a book or a donation at the Wegmans on Sheridan Drive in Williamsville.
