The community-wide Canby Reads program culminated in a library field trip and free books for kids

Canby Public Library closed its doors to the public for the special event, and Superintendent Trip Goodall spent time there to greet the students. He had also kicked off Canby Reads at the beginning of April by visiting and reading a story to each second grade class in the school district. At the library, many of the kids remembered the book Goodall had read to them.

"Our second grade students had a great time exploring the Canby Public Library as part of our Canby Reads field trip," said Superintendent Trip Goodall. "The kids loved the hands-on activities like the scavenger hunt. And we couldn't be happier that our students will get to continue their reading adventure at home, thanks to DirectLink's donation of a book for each student."

Canby Reads was a collaborative effort of the school district and many community businesses and organizations.

"We know this wouldn't have been the success it was without our sponsors: Canby Public Library, The Canby Center, DirectLink and Canby Rotary," Goodall said. "We're so grateful to have these community partners."
