Description

The North Bend Police Department was proud to participate in the “Gift of Literacy” program to encourage a love of reading. The program is a cooperative project undertaken annually by our local Rotary Clubs with a grant for Rotary District 5110, and this year with generous sponsorship support from First Community Credit Union. The Rotary Clubs and school districts of North Bend, Coos Bay, Reedsport, Bandon, Coquille, Myrtle Point, and Powers, along with South Coast ESD and Southwestern Oregon Community College, all partnered to help first-graders on the southern Oregon coast get excited about books over the past six months. Nearly 400 of these students assembled at Southwestern Oregon Community College on Wednesday for a special event that included a short skit and having two books read to them by local celebrities such as police officers and Oregon Coast Culinary Institute students. Each student then opened a gift bag to reveal the book they selected to take home as their very own.
