Mishawaka bookseller gives away 50,000 books


There were a lot of smiling kids Saturday in Mishawaka.  Better World Books was giving away 50,000 children's books.  Kids and their parents could collect new books for free.  Teachers were also invited to stock up on books for their classrooms. 

Better World Books has given away books before but this was the first time they held such a large scale giveaway.  John Ujda with Better World Books said, "This is a thank you to the community for supporting better world books over the last 10 years and the event fits perfectly with our mission, which is to support local and global literacy initiatives."

The company also presented a check to the Robinson Community Learning Center.
