National Children's Book Week has been celebrated since 1919 and is to spread the word about children's literature and encouraging the love of reading.
Annually, the week before Thanksgiving, Liberty County Schools applaud books and reading. Frank Long Elementary has set several events to mark the week. The top point earners for each grade with an 85 percent goal will have a special lunch with Principal Scott Carrier on Friday, Dec. 4. The points are calculated on Accelerated Reader quizes. The students will get to bring their teachers along.
