ALBANY -- Students at Northside Elementary School rushed to the library Tuesday morning.That's because the library got 262 new books.

Like all schools in Georgia, Northside had their library budget cut in half this year, but they were able to get the books through a $5,000 grant from Bank of America and the United Way.

Juwannis Butler, a student, said, "I just want to say thank you for all these books." "These kids are always in the library, always reading, kids going to stay in school and graduate," Barbara Logan, Executive Director of Communities in Schools said.

Communities in Schools distributed the books this morning through a Success by Six grant. The next schools slated to receive books are Magnolia and Turner Elementaries.
