Welcome to Columbia Magazine  

KY now in 3rd place for free books. We can do better.

By Barbara Armitage

This opportunity for Kentucky kids was brought to my attention through a friend who has a friend in Eastern Kentucky who is a retired school librarian. It is a program to get underprivileged children hooked on reading. The state which wins this online vote will receive 50,000 new books for needy children.

All you have to do is follow the link below--you don't have to answer the question about your favorite book - just scroll down on the left hand side, select KY, put in your name and email (uncheck the box so you don't receive updates) and submit your vote.

If we can move Kentucky up to 1st place, First Book will send 50,000 free books to the state for needy children. You can vote once each day. To vote, Click Here. Thanks for taking time to do this, and feel free to forward to your email contacts.
