As part of the Rotary Reads program, Overland Park Rotary Club member and CGSC Foundation Trustee Mike Meyer arranged for the donation of more than 300 children’s books to the Ike Skelton Combined Arms Research Library on Feb. 14, 2020.
In the photo above, Meyer, far right, celebrates the donation with (from left) Lora Morgan, Foundation Director of Operations; Michael Hittson, CARL Circulation Librarian; Kelsey Busch, CARL Acquisition Librarian; and Rod Cox, Foundation President/CEO.
Books donated include Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales, Star Wars – Leia, Princess of Alderaan, and Beauty and the Beast – Lost in a Book.
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.”
