CAMDEN, N.J. (CBS) – The Camden Literacy Project held an event on Monday that allowed K-3 students to take books home for summer reading.

Low-income students in grades K-3 were able to take ten free, high quality books home to read during the summer.

The Camden Literacy Project’s goal is to build awareness in the Camden community about how important summer reading is.

The Project is a partnership between Children’s Literacy Initiative (CLI) and Townsend Press, whose owners, John Langan and Judith Nadell, have donated over $2 million to education initiatives in Camden.
