October 22, 2003
Albany- A group of fifth grade girls at Alice Coachman Elementary School now have their own book club.

The girls are now part of the Addy Walker Reading Program. It's a national project of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.

They kicked off the club's first meeting today with a tea for the group. The book club should help students with their reading, writing and their oral skills.

"We're hoping we can get these students to enjoy reading more and as a result raise their reading comprehensive scores as far as the CRCT is concerned and in general their every day reading skills," said Gail Gibson, the school's assistant principal and a member of the sorority.

There area already book clubs in four other Dougherty County elementary schools.
