Our Students Join in Bookwave 2020 Campaign

For the seventh consecutive year, Athens College Elementary School participated in Bookwave 2020, a campaign initiated by the volunteer organization Library4all.

The objective of this organization is to support school libraries.  Library4all is made aware of the needs of schools from around Greece and then helps these schools to either create libraries or expand their existing collections. Books offered are either new or in excellent condition and usually come from private donations, companies, publishers, writers and non-profit entities. 

 

  

The Elementary School’s Student Community once again got engaged, managing to collect one thousand literary books (fairytales) for Kindergarten students.

The books were packaged on Monday, February 3, 2020 and sent to the Library4all collection center at the Benaki Museum on Pireos Street, with the wish and hope that other children, particularly very young ones, may be exposed to the world of books and thus acquire a love of reading so that books become a part of their lives
