Spotlight Fall 2014

October 20, 2014  |  By  | 


2 The NFRC held a wonderfully successful book giveaway at the Buffalo Zoo in June! It was a beautiful day as families began their visit to the Rain Forest. They were greeted by the volunteers from NFRC, and each child chose a favorite book to take home and read over the summer. We were able to give away a great selection of trade books, both fiction and nonfiction ordered through Scholastic. Many of our books went home with visitors of all ages to enjoy, and the event was a great success! We left with only one box of books! I would like to personally thank everyone who showed up to volunteer. We couldn’t have done it without you! Please consider joining us next year if you are interested in a fun day and experiencing the joy of seeing a child’s face light up when given a book. Janet Gorfien !
