Donations help Bedford schools fund book for reading month


Donations from the Bedford Lions Club, the Knights of Columbus, and the Bedford Parent-Teacher Association will fund the purchase of a book that every family of a Bedford Public Schools student will receive.

The book is The Trumpet of the Swan, a classic by E.B. White that tells the story of Louis, a trumpeter swan born without a voice. School staff members will receive a copy too. The goal is to have everyone in the district reading the same book during March’s National Reading Month.
