BRINDISI LAUNCHES “BRINDISI BOOKWORMS” TO GET MORE BOOKS ON SHELVES IN UPSTATE NEW YORK
Anthony And Erica Brindisi Kick Off New Reading Program At Utica Public Library; Donate Books From Library Of Congress
The Brindisis Will Visit Schools And Libraries Across New York’s 22nd Congressional District
Congressman Anthony Brindisi (NY-22) and Erica Brindisi visited Utica Public Library today to launch “Brindisi Bookworms,” a program to help get more books on shelves across New York’s 22nd Congressional District.
Led by Congressman Brindisi’s wife, Erica, “Brindisi Bookworms” will take advantage of the Library of Congress Surplus Book Program which allows members of Congress to donate the Library’s extra books to schools, libraries, community centers, and other qualifying organizations.
The Brindisis today donated books and met with staff at the Utica Public Library.
“A good book can open up an entire world of knowledge, transport you to a different time and place, or change the way you think about the world,” said Erica Brindisi.“Reading has always been a huge part of my life, and I want to help inspire that same love of reading in others. I’m so excited to lead this project and help get more books on library shelves across Upstate New York.”
“In our house, reading is a family affair. I’m glad to have Erica join me to help get kids excited about reading and develop the skills they need for successful futures,” said Congressman Brindisi.
