Congresswoman Robin Kelly will personally deliver more than 100 books Friday, April 5, to Homewood-Flossmoor Community High School in Flossmoor, as part of the Library of Congress’ Surplus Books Program. She will meet with H-F teachers, staff and students — including the MVP Aesthetics & the Creative Process Across the Arts class — in the H-F Library at 10:45 a.m.
“These donations not only help our schools and public libraries expand their collections, but it’s also an opportunity for me to visit with students and answer their questions about government and issues that are of real concern to them,” says Congresswoman Kelly.
Since 2013, she has donated more than 3,000 books to schools and libraries throughout the 2nd District, from Chicago’s South Side to the South Suburbs and across Kankakee and Will Counties.
The Library of Congress donates surplus books to schools, libraries and non-profits through Members of Congress. Previous schools that have received books from Congresswoman Kelly through this program include: Bloom Trail High School in Chicago Heights; Sandridge Elementary School in Lynwood; Douglas Taylor Elementary School in Chicago; Creative Communications Academy in Calumet City; Strassburg Elementary School in Sauk Village; LaVasseur Elementary School in Bourbonnais; Dr. Ralph J. Bunche Elementary School in Markham; and Crete-Monee High School in Crete. Learn more about the Surplus Books Program at https://www.loc.gov/acq/surplus.html.
