Student Organizes Book Drive
for Literacy Council
In November the Literacy Council received an early Christmas present of a donation of 2,161 children’s books. Our student volunteer, Sierra Hawkins (above center with Emily McMurray, left, and Lacia Core), organized and managed a book drive through the O’Neal School where she is a Senior, and she succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams!
Thanks to Sierra’s superb effort, we were able to give two books to each of our adult students to share with their children on Christmas Day. It has been a very Merry Christmas
at Moore County Literacy Council this year.
We wish the same to all of you...and a prosperous and Happy New Year, as well.

MCLC eBULLETIN BOARD
As you all know, Pam Giambelluca, our longtime Program Director, has retired. To wish her well we had scheduled an open house at the Read Moore Center on Thursday, Feb 26. Because the Read Moore Center was closed due to our policy of closing in sync with Moore County Schools we will hopefully be rescheduling this special event. Please stay tuned to see if we will announcing a new date.
We also want to welcome our new Program Director, Betsy Laflin. Please stop by her office and welcome her to the MCLC!
