Between the Lines had a Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) Reading/Tour on October 13, 2012. The reading at Coffee Creek was a success! We offered readings for 25 mothers who read to 49 children. Many were first time readers and it seemed all enjoyed their experience.
The Between the Lines Committee also had a very busy holiday season! The group went to Santiam Correctional Facility in early November. The committee also wrapped and mailed books with CDs to the children who were read to from Santiam and CCCF.
In December, Between the Lines hosted a Book Fair at the Barnes & Noble at Bridgeport Village, on Saturday, December 8 from 11:00a.m. to 4:00p.m.
