YES and Area Rotary Clubs Fund Financial Library Book Collection for Participating Libraries.
YES thinks Reading Makes Cent$ a very effective way for teaching Financial Literacy concepts to elementary students in a fun and engaging way. Because lesson plan templates and age appropriate activities accompany each book, it is easy for any teacher to incorporate into their curriculum. Frustrated that only 7 librarians could win the full set in a given year, YES teamed up with 5 area Rotary Clubs to raise money so that each of the 28 participating elementary librarians in Rockingham County received the full Financial Library Book Collection. Lynne Stover, then serving as the YES funded teacher advocate and consultant, along with YES board members, personally delivered each of the 28 sets to the school librarians.
