Illustrate-A-Book Program Books For Sale!

The Illustrate-A-Book (IAB) program was created by Children’s Librarian Shiela M. Keaise at the Colleton County Memorial Library to encourage talented children to find pleasure in reading and to get them motivated to make a difference in their community.  Since creative, gifted, talented, and bright children frequently experience restlessness, inattention, and day-dreaming, the IAB’s mission is to re-channel their behavior while providing fulfillment and accomplishment. Click here for more information.

 

 

Books on sale for $10 (all proceeds go to Children’s Department)
