Seventeen year old Caroline Jones loves books and reading. As a matter of fact she loves reading so much that she recently wrote, illustrated, and published a children’s book, “One More Book Please” to encourage young children to share in her passion. Caroline plans to donate proceeds from her book to provide books and educational materials for young children through charitable organizations and to bring awareness to the importance of childhood literacy.
She will be reading her newly published book at the Marian Sutherland. Kirby Library in Mountaintop on Tuesday, September 17 at 6:00 pm for children ages 2-6. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and will be signed by Caroline.
Parents are encouraged to attend and hear about Caroline’s Read to Succeed! project that she created to promote the importance of childhood literacy. As part of this project, she organized over 5,000 books and delivered them to children and parents at numerous community-based agencies and developed several presentations and book distributions.
In keeping with the evening’s theme, Miss Michelle, Youth Services Library Assistant, will do her part to promote the love of books to the children by reading additional stories followed by a craft.
