Lawrenceville First Baptist Church – First Book Club 165 collects new and gently used children’s books to distribute to the four elementary schools in the Central Gwinnett cluster school community.

Lawrenceville First Baptist Church (LFBC) – First Book Club 165 needs volunteers to sort and pack children’s books at the Hooper Renwick School, located at 56 Neal Boulevard, Lawrenceville, Georgia, every Saturday in October from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Vicki Aiken, leader of the book ministry at LFBC, saw a need for children to have books available to them during the summer months. “Through the tutoring ministry at our church, we noticed some of the children didn’t have access to books to read during the summer,” Aiken said.

Research shows that children, who lack access to books during the summer months, experienced a sharp decline in their reading levels, referred to as the “summer slide.”

Volunteers of all ages are invited to participate on any given Saturday in October.
