A local university is making it a point to distribute as many books possible to elementary school children.
Minot State’s Student North Dakota United and the Student Council for exceptional children have been collecting new and gently used books.
So far 1,000 books have been collected.
They’re goal is to distribute 3,000.
The organizations have also partnered with local book stores and businesses in Minot.
“We’re raising funds to give books to as many students as we can across the region and books that match their needs like if they have exceptionalities or if they need Braille, our students are actually going through the process of locating the right book for each student as best we can,” said Dan Conn who is an Assistant Professor of Teaching Education at MSU.
The book collection ends Friday. If you would like to donate stop by the first floor of the Old Main building.
