Rotarians Mary Ann Colf and Connie Ragen Green connected with Michelle Morse, Director of Child Development Programs for Saugus Union, and on May 8 the Rotary Club affixed book plates to all 700 books.
Also on hand was Judy Umeck, president of the School Board and Superintendent Dr. Joan Lucid.
This project was the culmination of several months of fundraising efforts by Rotary, and all 700 book titles were hand-picked by former classroom teacher Connie Ragen Green.
