‘Ice Cream for Books’ a sweet success
Wadena Minnesota 314 S. Jefferson 56482

More than 225 children of all ages scooped up books at Wadena-Deer Creek Elementary's annual “Ice Cream for Books” Thursday evening, April 10 at the school. It's an event that encourages families with young children to read and recycle books.

"It was a great turnout," said Pam Hanson, a WDC teacher who coordinates the event that continues to grow in popularity each year.

This free, school-sponsored event features a book swap, book bingo, a free book-a-minute giveaway, and, of course, ice cream treats! The book swap is always a favorite as children donates books and collects tickets to receive gently-used books in return.
