Rotary Club provides free books to the Boys & Girls Clubs

FALLBROOK On Wednesday, Feb. 10, members of the Rotary Club of Fallbrook volunteered their afternoon to read and hand out books to the children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County.

The Rotarians put the children’s imaginations to work during story time as they read through fun stories such as "Duck in Muck," and "There was a Coyote Who Swallowed a Flea." The children then had the pleasure of choosing their own books to take home.

"We’re extremely grateful to the Rotary Club of Fallbrook for helping our club put together such a fun event," said Allison Barclay, chief executive officer of the Boys & Girls Clubs of North County. "Through this partnership, we were able to spread the excitement of reading to the members of our club as well as provide books that our kids can keep."

In total, more than 600 books were handed out to kids in grades K-8 at five elementary school sites, as well as the Ingold Clubhouse.
