Congressman McKinley sheds light on a free book service


When it comes to learning to read, educators agree: the younger, the better. 

Congressman David McKinley is shedding light on a free book service. The library of commerce in Washington D.C. will donate new books to any non-profit organization. McKinley said he hopes the program inspires the community to read.

“They don’t have to fill out an application, they don’t have to stand in line. All they [have to] do is call our office, tell us ‘we need two, three hundred books’ what ever the quantity may be of a particular genre or general book and we will take care of it.”

Local non-profits interested in the program can call McKinley’s Morgantown office at (304) 284-8506.
