On Saturday January 18th, The Goddard School in Darien held its culminating event in its month long Book drive.  Along with celebrating the collection of 4400 books at the school, and 44,000 books by all of the Chicagoland Goddard Schools, that are being donated to Bernie’s Book Bank for distribution to underprivileged children in the Chicago area, the school celebrated books and reading.

 

City of Darien Mayor Kathleen Weaver started the Book Reading at the School to a classroom full of enthusiastic children and parents.  Karen Hayes of Usborne Books and Shirin Shamsi of Barefoot Books also read books to children.  Ronald McDonald stopped by and read books and performed some magic tricks for the children.  The event also included face painting, spray on art, balloon sculptures, and refreshments.
