Congresswoman Robin Kelly Donates Books to Marian Catholic High School

Oct 10, 2014
Press Release

Congresswoman Robin Kelly personally delivered nearly 150 books to Marian Catholic High School as part of the Library of Congress Surplus Book Program.

“Books open young minds to new worlds and possibilities,” Congresswoman Kelly said. “A book we donated may be the reason a student chooses a certain career or decides to pursue a new interest.  It’s also gratifying to interact with the students because they’re always curious about careers in public service—which I try to encourage.”

The Library of Congress routinely donates extra copies or surplus books to schools and non-profits through Members of Congress. Congresswoman Kelly regularly contacts schools across the 2nd Congressional District to introduce the program. Schools expressing an interest in the program receive age-appropriate books directly from the Library of Congress.
