Johnson delivers books to Anderson-Livsey Elementary School

U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., recently got to play Santa Claus to three local school libraries, including one in Gwinnett County.

Johnson delivered books to Anderson-Livsey Elementary School in Snellville as part of his Nov. 27 tour of three schools. The congressman’s office said the books were made available to the schools through the Library of Congress’ surplus books program.

In addition to Anderson-Livsey, Johnson also visited two schools in Lithonia, Fairington Elementary School and Flat Rock Elementary School. In addition to the supplies of books, Johnson also gave school principals and media specialists copies of “Women in Congress,” “African Americans in Congress” and “Hispanic Americans in Congress.”

Each school also received a flag that had been flown over the U.S. Capitol.

“The guiding principle behind the program is to build library collections, but I must say the short tour served as a great opportunity to talk to some of country’s future leaders,” Johnson said in a statement. “I thoroughly enjoyed talking to the children about what they want to be when they grow up, their favorite books and what they want for Christmas.”

Political Notebook appears in the Wednesday and Sunday editions of the Gwinnett Daily Post.
