Jane Ryan Elementary School’s Brownie Troop #35080 will be holding a book drive for the month of March. The troop will have a box in the front hall of the school to collect new and gently used children’s books. Reading specialist Kristen Beccaria also has a collection box outside of the school’s library. The books donated during the brownie troop’s drive will go to Read to Grow, a Connecticut based foundation that promotes literacy to children throughout Connecticut.
