Twenty-five students from Chester-Andover Elementary School received personalized books on Tuesday, Dec. 6 with the support of John Holmes, a Chester Rotarian, whose interest is to improve literacy. Each of the students’ names are woven into a personalized story that includes family members and pets. “These personalized books develop a sense of appreciation for reading,” said Holmes. “Some hold on to their books long enough to read them to their own children years later. Tremendously exciting adventures start by reading. Our hope is that this program will simply provide an added encouragement for students to pick up a book and read.”
