Each month, we recognize a Kansas school or library that has found a special way to promote reading to kids. This week the Eagles of Norwich School are honored.
Kindergartners through 12th graders assemble in what students and faculty at Norwich School call, "The Eagle's Nest".
They gather to hear that their school is this month's recipient of the KAKEland Reading Caravan Award. And, there's a bonus. The Strong Insurance Agency of Kingman gave an extra $500 to the school.
Now, the librarian has $1000 to buy new books for students.
