School Donates Books to Help Build Community Mini-Libraries

NAACP members Nadine Poston and Dr. Teretha Harper sort and prepare books, donated by College Hill Middle School, for distribution to Kool School sites.

Over 3,000 books were recently donated to the NAACP Kool Schools Mini-Libraries project. College Hill Middle School social studies teacher Yolanda Smith saw a great opportunity to give back to the community. After inquiring about the regular recycling and replacement of library books at her school, Smith requested the books be donated to Miller County NAACP Kool School sites to help with their new project. Without hesitation, Principal Johnny Arnold agreed, and on Thursday, September 10, Mr. Arnold and Ms. Smith presented the books to members of the NAACP.


Books will be distributed to the seven Kool School project sites which include six churches and one downtown business: Hall Memorial Methodist, Miles Chapel, St. Paul Methodist, Walker Chapel CME, Tower of Power Ministries, Eleventh Street Baptist, and C and C Attitudes. Children and their families are welcome to visit the sites and check out books. For more information contact Yolanda Smith via e-mail at
