Editor: Friends of the Marshfield Public Library's Give-A-Kid-A-Book Program surpassed even last year's total, this year more than 1,200 books were donated. Thank you to everyone who so generously donated books to the program.

Children of all ages will be able to enjoy the opportunity that reading brings; adventure, excitement, wonder, fun and a step up to their future. Literacy is so important in a child's life and what a wonderful way to give them a start or continue their education. The donated books were distributed to the many family service organizations here in Marshfield and were received with sincere thanks.

A special thank you to Mike Weigel and Chong for the video shown on Marshfield Community Television, Joyce Fox and LeAnne Schwartz for sorting books, Altrusa International members for generous donation of books and the Friends of the Marshfield Public Library for distributing the books to the organizations. Also thanks to the Alternative School students Jordan, Hamilton, Thesia, Dylan, Chrystal, Mason, Cody and their teachers, Sara Spencer, Jerry Littmann and Tamie Franks, for giving their time in sorting and labeling the books. What a great group of helpers!

The GAKAB Program is successful due to the caring and generous spirit of the Marshfield community. The children thank you and appreciate your involvement.
