On behalf of the Grand County School District, we would like to thank Back of Beyond Books for their Books for Tots program. Thank you for taking the time to organize a program that has successfully made new and highly recommended titles available to the children in our community.

We also thank those who purchased or donated books for the program. The overwhelming response proves once again that literacy is important and a priority to all of us in Grand County.

Helen M. Knight Elementary received a total of 55 titles this year. What a delight to start the new year off with such beautiful and amazing, new titles. It was like Christmas all over again. The Sundwall Center, Moab Charter School and BEACON After-School Program also received books through the Books for Tots program.

Thank you so much and Happy New Year!

—The staff of HMK library
