Celebrating National Library Week

May 6, 2024

Wellington Bay Senior Living Community Supports The Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County

A passion for reading and sharing books runs deep in the Wellington Bay senior living community. In order to honor the importance of reading for National Library Week late last month, Wellington Bay’s resident library committee organized a new book drive to benefit the Literacy Coalition of Palm Beach County. The residents of Wellington Bay graciously donated 175 books. These will be distributed through the children’s and family literacy programs, reaching 55,967 adults, children, and families over the course of a year. Since 1989, the Literacy Coalition has been the leading advocate for Literacy in Palm Beach County, working to improve the quality of life in the community by promoting and achieving literacy.

Head of the Wellington Bay library committee, resident Caroll Raskin, explained, ”As a retired librarian, it was important to me to do something special for children during National Library Week. After researching ways to have a positive impact on the most children, the work of the Literacy Coalition of Beach County stood out. “I felt confident that we would not only be helping those in the Village of Wellington but many that are less fortunate as well,” she said, adding, “The residents of Wellington Bay always like to give back to the community, and so this seemed like a perfect fit. We were totally amazed at how many children the Literacy Coalition of Beach County reaches.”

“We hope to make this an annual event. Our residents were thrilled and had lots of fun shopping for the books,” said Caroll.
