June 6, 2014
Some kids in the Garland Independent School District will kick off their summer with brand new books.
Garland schools want to inspire kids to love reading, so the district partnered with Scholastic Corporation to give away 50,000 books on the last day of school.
They will hand out backpacks, each filled with five books, on the last day of school for students in early childhood programs, Pre-K and first grade students.
Both English and Spanish selections will be included; backpacks will contain reading logs and journals, family activities and math games.
