The Books are In! Cuyahoga Falls Library Receives 50 Multicultural Books

In March 2010,  Happy Birthday Author participated in the Share a Story, Shape a Future "Writing About Reading" Event.  I was chosen as a finalist and selected as a winner through an online vote for the posts that I contributed during the week long event. As a result, 50 multicultural books were donated to the Cuyahoga Falls Library. The books were provided by Reading is Fundamental, the nation's largest children's literacy organization.

I wanted to inform all my voters and supporters that the Cuyahoga Falls Library has received their books.  The books are now in circulation and I was so excited to see that the library went the extra effort to recognize Happy Birthday Author with bookplates.  

About a year ago, I noticed bookplates in honor of another foundation who donated books to the Cuyahoga Falls Library.  I said to my wife, "It would be awesome to come into some money and be able to donate books to the library." I can't believe that I was able to accomplish this through writing this blog.  I am truly thankful to all my readers and supporters.
