G.R.E.A.T. (Gwinnett Reading Exchange & Art Transforms) Little Minds program is continuing their mission of placing book exchanges with early learning books where books are scarce in Gwinnett. The G.R.E.A.T. Little Minds book exchange, a program of the Gwinnett Coalition for Health and Human Services, is seeking residents to become book exchange stewards.

Volunteers interested in lending a hand will check to be sure appropriate 0-8-year-old books are inside, verify the exchange is in good working order and communicate with the Gwinnett Coalition to ensure successful usage.

Last month the organization distributed hundreds of books to the Lawrenceville Co-Op and the Gwinnett, Newton and Rockdale County Health Departments to ensure books would be given to children before and during spring break.

Donations of gently used books for ages 0-8 will resume as soon as offices are allowed to reopen.

Questions: greatlittleminds@gwinnettcoalition.org or 770-995-3339, ext. 209.
