book blessings

A student from Leslie Brightwell’s Kindergarten class shows off one of her book selections to another girl at the Book Blessings book fair Thursday afternoon.

The Book Blessings project, which distributes free books to children in Panola County kindergarten and first grade students, has cancelled its upcoming book fair in light of the coronavirus.

However, organizers say they still plan to distribute books to area children in Carthage, Beckville and Gary schools. School districts will be releasing information to parents and guardians about book distributions.

Monetary donations are still being accepted for the project. Mail them to Carthage UMC, 201 S. Shelby St., Carthage, TX 75633.
