“The idea for this project is to see which school can read the most books during Nevada Reading Week,” said Linda Alterwitz-Mizrahi, co-owner and director of community projects for Walker Furniture. “This annual competition to promote and encourage reading is rewarding and gratifying for everyone involved.” Sixteen elementary schools participated and collectively read 5,485 books that week.
