On Wednesday, July 26, 2017 the Rolla Area Chamber of Commerce Education Committee and Rolla Books & Toys presented Laura Brown, Director of Rolla Parents as Teachers, with 100 books valued at $743.56.
Books and donations were collected in May and June; with Rolla Books & Toys as a partner, selling the recommended books at a discount and collecting the books at their retail location. All monetary donations were used to purchase books from the approved book list.
Parents as Teachers in the Rolla area visits children ages 3 and under – books are presented to the children by Parent Educators that visit them in their homes.
We would like to thank everyone in the community who donated books and cash donations to support the book drive.
