When asked if they like the donated books, the students all enthusiastically and simultaneously said, “yes!” “It’s really cool when we get new books delivered,” student Emma Kopcha said. The more locations students read at, the more tickets they get to turn in for a prize drawing.One Spring Mills family recently donated children biographies about Neil Armstrong, Walt Disney, Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, Anne Frank, Henry Ford and the Wright brothers. Grimminger hopes to keep adding to the list to help build the classroom library.
