The CGSC Foundation has supported the children’s reading program at the library for several years.

“Our Foundation is proud to support programs that encourage reading by military families and which add to the quality of life for military children,” said Foundation Director of Operations Lora Morgan. “We hope that these books will provide many hours of enjoyment for readers and serve to encourage children to read more.”
