Kellis High School
Pictured are students from Kellis High School, a Title I school in the Peoria Unified School District. The Phoenix-area chapter of Libraries, Ltd. donated $1000 to purchase approximately 110 books for their library. In addition, “Kids Need to Read” donated 40 books.
A private donation financed a visit to the school’s creative writing club by local YA author Tom Leveen. Fifteen students listened as Tom discussed topics including motivation, the publishing process, and how to persevere through rejections and re-writes.

Our yearly book distribution was held on January 26, 2018 at the St. Peter’s Indian Mission School. Wearing traditional clothing, students performed Native American dances. About 300 Pre-K-8th grade students received new books of their choice. Also following tradition was Clifford the Big Red Dog, who entertained the crowd.
