District 196 communications director Tony Taschner helps Apple Valley Rotary members pack donated books.

In before the sun rose on Wednesday, Sept. 26, District 196 staff and Superintendent Mary M. Kreger, along with members of the Apple Valley Rotary, were hard at work packing over 15,000 new and gently used books that will be made available to district students. Over the last three months, rotarians collected thousands of books as part of their literacy project, which is in its fourth year. Along with the books, each third-grade student in the district will receive a new dictionary, something the rotarians have been providing for 11 years.
