Book donations aim to enrich lives of young children

SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- More kids will soon be able to enter the world of make-believe all thanks to a huge book donation at the South Charleston library.

More than 1,000 books are now waiting to fill the hands of young readers.

All of the new hardbacks are coming from a grant from the Molina Foundation through the non-profit group EnAct. The CEO of the organization says they are not done with the donations yet.

In all there are 3,000 books that will be distributed throughout EnActs five county coverage area of Kanawha, Clay, Boone, Putnam and Fayette Counties.

"We will be providing 30 different day care centers, libraries, and Head Start centers in our five county area with a nice supply of new books," Brent Pauley, CEO of EnAct Community Action said.

"This is just another great way EnAct Community Action can improve the lives of the low-income families we serve."
