Fresno, you’re doing great and interesting things, library-wise.
From the Fresno Bee, “Two Central High School East librarians were honored with the Nutrition Educator Award in Anaheim on Jan. 15 as part of a statewide nutrition education contest. Christina Flores and Janet Wile were honored at the Astor Classics Event Center in Anaheim and also won $500 for Central Unified’s “Athletes as Readers and Leaders” program, which promotes healthy eating habits.
As part of this program, which is in its eighth year, high school students visit elementary school each Friday to read books about healthy eating to kindergarten to third-grade classes.” (Feb. 14, 2016)
Congratulations to Ms. Flores, Ms. Wile, Central East student athletes, and Central Unified!
