Throw the books at them

Reno News & Review general manager John Murphy and his son Doug unload boxes of books at Robert Mitchell School in Sparks as part of the “Read and Succeed” campaign. The books, acquired through the efforts of the school district and Community Compact, are distributed to schools each year, and students can choose free books. The effort this year, during which books were distributed to 23 schools in one day, put the annual efforts over 124,000 books distributed.
