This Thursday, April 29 from 4-5 p.m. at the Literacy Center, 4 Science Park, New Haven Police Lt. Rebecca Sweeney and other members of the NHPD will launch a campaign to provide books and promote reading across city neighborhoods. This effort is in collaboration with New Haven Reads.
Each participating child will receive a free book. Residents are invited to register for the event by contacting Lieutenant Sweeney at 203-946-7827. She is also seeking donations to support this cause.
