Kiwanis Club and book publisher made it happen
The library at Central Park Elementary School in Roseville was packed full with three fourth-grade classes Feb. 24 to witness the ribbon cutting on the school’s new Reading Oasis.
The North Suburban St. Paul Kiwanis Club and Scholastic Books came together to donate the Reading Oasis to the school, each donating $5,500 towards the cause.
Kiwanis member Todd Levig explained that he and other club members assembled the benches and book shelves, while high school-aged Kiwanis Key Club members labeled the Oasis’ 1,200 books, color-coding them by grade level.
