Lake Gaston Booker’s Club Donates Books To Jackson-Feild

For eighteen of their thirty years in existence, members of the Lake Gaston Bookers Club have been donating books to Jackson-Feild.  Last month, just in time for the holidays, the members donated a number of books to the Gwaltney School at Jackson-Feild Behavioral Health Services (JFBHS).

At the request of the Bookers Club, faculty and staff at JFBHS provided a list of titles that appeal to the residents.  Several members of the Bookers Club visited the JFBHS campus and presented the books to school staff. The books are housed in the school library, and are available to students through a typical library check-out system.

Over the years, the Bookers Club has hosted other events and activites depending upon the needs and interests of the children. The Gwaltney School students enjoy reading, and are most grateful to the club members for their kindness in donating books that satisfy their reading appetites.
