"We have over a thousand books to give away and we are still collecting, so there may be even more," said Pattie Thomas, CSN sociology instructor and faculty advisor to the Living Sociology Club. "Educators have long known that children and young adults who read independently, meaning reading by choice and for pleasure, not only read better, but develop skills and habits that enhance their education and their transitions from school to college to work smoother."
