Lynn Community Health Center and the East Boston Community Health Center
and the Salem State student mission to Liberia over Spring Break 2013

February 11-15, 2013 

Each year the Salem State Preschool collects books to donate to local organizations to promote early literacy. Last year we collected over 400 books!

Children going to see the doctor for a sick or well visit may take home a book and build their home library. Please help us again this year to collect new or gently used books for children six months (board books) to 10 years old.

Plus, this year a student teacher from the preschool will travel to Liberia over spring break and will be taking books for the Ganta Mission School.

Our community service committee chairperson, Michelle Sedgwick, is coordinating this annual activity. Please talk to your child about this project and how important it is to help others.

 Collection boxes on campus:

  • Preschool on Upper South Campus
  • English department in Meier Hall
  • Salem State Library on Central Campus
  • Education Department, Sullivan Building, room 303

Thank you in advance for your help with this worthwhile community project which supports early literacy.
