Calumet City-(ENEWSPF)- Congresswoman Robin Kelly personally delivered nearly 50 books to Creative Communications Academy in Calumet City as part of the Library of Congress Surplus Book Program.

“Reading stirs the imagination of young people, exposes them to new ideas and transports them to new worlds,” Congresswoman Kelly said. “I was pleased to see that the students were very enthusiastic about the donation.”

The donated books ranged from novels to textbooks and non-fiction.

The Library of Congress routinely donates extra copies or surplus books to schools and non-profits through Members of Congress. Congresswoman Kelly recently contacted schools across the 2nd Congressional District to introduce the program. Several schools replied and those schools will soon receive age-appropriate books directly from the Library of Congress.
