September is Basic Education and Literacy Month

Madera Sunrise Rotarians Making a Difference!

Madera Sunrise Rotary is Making a Difference at their regular Rotary Club Meetings. Once a month they do a mini project together. The first mini project was to donate and sort books which were then donated to Friends of the Madera County Library, The Madera County Juvenile Detention Center, the Madera County Department of Corrections, and the Storybook Project at the Valley State Prison for Women. The students at the Juvenile Detention Center used a survey to request books by genre, title, and authors. The teacher said results produced an increase in reading and vocabulary. Comments from the students included: “I’ve read 6 books and they are great!”, “Outstanding gift!”, and “Thank you so much – words can’t explain!”
