Over 1,000 books donated to Greenbrier Elementary

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Students at Greenbrier Elementary finally have new books in their hands.

A company based out of California donated over 1,000 to the school. Teacher Created Materials gave the books to school officials Wednesday. The books are learning guides that help students with reading comprehension.

Principal Shayla Hollins says the donation will make a big difference. "Right now, they're using digital resources because our school lost everything," Hollins said. "But now, they'll be able to have books that they can hold in their hands, as well as our teachers will have resources that they can use as well."

Greenbrier has over 400 students and they're currently sharing Broadmoor Middle School's campus. They plan to return to their own campus in 2018.
