Celebrating Book Week

National Children's Book Week is an age-old tradition. Celebrated since 1919, it is devoted to spreading the word about children's literature and encouraging the love of reading.  Annually, Liberty County Schools applaud books and reading by coming up with ideas to mark this special event.
