What a fun-filled week! We spent a morning in Fremont, California with our partner, Kristi Yamaguchi's Always Dream Foundation, celebrating the young scholars who completed the Raising A Reader program. Students at Glenmoor Elementary in Fremont USD were given Blue Library Bags to keep so they can continue sharing books for years to come! http://ow.ly/i/EJx6T http://ow.ly/i/EJx88 http://ow.ly/i/EJx9f http://ow.ly/i/EJxaT
