600 books find good homes at Reading Seed giveaway

Citizen Staff Photographer

Five minutes after the doors opened at the Community Food Bank, about 600 of the books in the Reading Seed program’s “1,000 Books in a Day Giveaway” were on their way to good homes.

It is the second year the nonprofit group, which recruits and trains volunteer reading coaches to help children who are reading below grade level, gave books away at the food bank, 3003 S. Country Club Road. The new or gently used books are holiday gifts for children in families who obtain food boxes at the food bank. The Reading Seed program has given more than 10,000 books to students in kindergarten through 12th grade this year.

Our Digital Archive

This blog page archives the entire digital archive of the Tucson Citizen from 1993 to 2009. It was gleaned from a database that was not intended to be displayed as a public web archive. Therefore, some of the text in some stories displays a little oddly. Also, this database did not contain any links to photos, so though the archive contains numerous captions for photos, there are no links to any of those photos.

There are more than 230,000 articles in this archive.

In TucsonCitizen.com Morgue, Part 1, we have preserved the Tucson Citizen newspaper's web archive from 2006 to 2009. To view those stories (all of which are duplicated here) go to Morgue Part 1
