MOSES LAKE — “I love books!”
Those were the happy words late Wednesday of one grade-schooler at the Boys & Girls Club of the Columbia Basin’s McGraw Family Clubhouse on Paxson Avenue, right next to Park Orchard Elementary School, as he saw all the books available.
And while he could only take one, he was still excited.
“I love books!” he said again.
The books — Disney Star Wars titles and a collection of story books from FirstBook — were purchased by Big Bend Community College, which then decided to share them with the community, with children who need books.
So BBCC’s five Associated Student Body officers came down to the McGraw Family Clubhouse to help give the books away.
“This is the third one so far I’ve been to,” said Brynn Brown, ASB programming director.
Brown, a native of South Jordan, Utah who is at BBCC to play basketball, said she also helped with the previous giveaways earlier this year at North and Larson Heights.
“I love it, love seeing the kids come up and grab books and just be able to interact with the kids,” she said. “To share with them why I love reading and why they should too.”
