Alhambra Educational Foundation donates 2,000 books to AUSD elementary schools

More than 2,000 preschool, kindergarten, and first-grade students in Alhambra took home a free book and bookmark earlier this month courtesy of the Alhambra Educational Foundation (AEF), the official fundraising partner of Alhambra Unified School District. AEF worked with literacy nonprofit Reading is Fundamental to deliver and donate books to students at all 13 elementary schools in the district.

November's book distribution — the first of three planned for the school year — is meant to foster a love of reading in young students, according to a press release from AEF. “For some students, our ["Reading is Fundamental"] books are the first books they’ve ever owned, and to see the look of excitement on their faces when they select them is priceless," said Edward O. Aguirre, Reading is Fundamental program chairman for AEF.

AEF has donated more than 20,000 books to local students since beginning the program with Reading is Fundamental in 2005 and is planning two more distributions in February and May 2014.
