First Book Comes to New Orleans

First Book, a national organization started to give books to low income kids across the country. After hurricane Katrina First Book set out to bring 5 million books to the gulf coast region. At a recent event held at the New Orleans Public Library, hundreds of books were gicen to kids from Bherman charter school. I attended the event and spoke with the chairman of first book and some kids on the receiving end of First Book's generosity.
