Free Books Promote Literacy

Assistance League of Bend provided over 300 free Scholastic books to children at the Family Movie Night event at the Tower Theatre on Friday, Sept. 23.

This free event is in partnership with the Tower Theatre, Deschutes Public Library, and the Boys and Girls Club of Bend. Thanks to Assistance League of Bend’s Operation School Bell®  literacy initiative, families were able to select age-appropriate books based on their child’s grade level: K-2, 3-5 or 6-8. Studies show that encouraging children to read helps to improve their skills and promotes a lifelong habit.
