Books from Birth received a $6,000 donation from Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr. today at the Lucius E. and Elsie C. Burch, Jr. Library. Jodi Hall, Youth Services Librarian, led children in a program and craft focused on starting school this August at which Mayor Mark H. Luttrell made a special appearance to read Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library book, Look Out Kindergarten Here I Come! to the children. After this program, which was presented through a partnership between the Collierville Burch Library and Books from Birth, Mayor Luttrell presented a check to Cindy Bennett, Development Officer for Books from Birth. Stan Joyner, Mayor of Collierville and Books from Birth supporter, was also present at Tuesday’s presentation. Also present was Deanna Britton, Director of the Collierville Burch Library.
The donation was raised through the Shelby County Mayor’s Charity Golf Tournament held annually at Edmond Orgill Golf Course. Mayor Luttrell started the tournament in 2010 to raise money to benefit youth and provide student scholarships for educational programs.
