Editor,

I want to thank Back of Beyond Books for organizing the Books for Tots program over the holidays. What a special gift to come back from the break to a big box of beautiful, new books.

My name is Tracy Renn and I am the library program coordinator at Grand County Middle School. I received over 40 titles this year and I am so excited to share it with the students.

Back of Beyond also donated to HMK, Moab Charter School, Grand County High School, Beacon, Youth Garden Project, Early Intervention Program, and the Grand Preschool. It seems that we are all seeing budget cuts so this is such a great event that the community takes part in.

Literacy is so important for our youth and I am so glad that our Moab community takes it seriously. Thanks again to Back of Beyond and everyone who donated!
