The Altrusa “Back to School” Fair is this Saturday and the Door County Library is helping out with an important aspect by donating books to the cause. Door County Library Youth Services Librarian Beth Lokken says pride of ownership of books is crucial to a child’s literacy development.
Last year the Altrusa of Door County’s “Back to School Fair” welcomed almost 600 children and provided backpacks, school supplies, shoes, socks, and free books as part of the community project. The Friends of the Door County Library are responsible for supplying the books for the fair, according to Lokken.
