TN First Lady Visits Chattanooga
First Lady Crissy Haslam made a stop in the Scenic City Wednesday.
Haslam and Chattanooga Police brought more than 1,000 books to several Chattanooga youth and family development centers.
It is part of the statewide effort to highlight the importance of summer reading and keeping students' skills sharp.
"It's a great partnership with the police department because they are in these communities and it's a good way for them to build relationships," Mrs. Haslam said.
Penguin Random House donated more than 5,300 books for the project.
Children who might not have access to books will receive the donations.
