Oklahoma City-based Feed the Children is providing more than 250,000 new books for metro school students.

All this week, teachers from 60 Oklahoma City elementary and charter schools will be gathering up to three boxes of new or slightly used books from Feed the Children.

Schools Superintendent Karl Springer says this helps move the city and state to a goal of literacy for all children.

“We really, really are looking for every strategy we can have for children to get books in their hands and to be able to take them home and read them. That’s exactly what this is about.”

Next week, teachers from the suburban schools like Harrah, Noble, Bethany and others will get to take part in collecting some of the more than 250,000 books on hand.

Officials say they plan to have books for middle and high schools in the next few weeks.
