The books donated are part of an ongoing effort by Congressman Issa to partner with local schools to provide new reading materials for students. Since Congressman Issa's earlier donation to Bonsall West Elementary in Oceanside this May, Congressman Issa has successfully secured nearly 800 new books for local libraries at 8 different schools across California’s 49th District.

"It's so important to provide our students with new opportunities to learn and grow," said Congressman Issa. "Yet many of our schools often lack the resources they need to expand or update their collections. This is a great program which increases access to new books that will reinforce learning, enhance imagination, boost literacy, and prepare our students for future success. I'm incredibly honored to partner with schools in our area to provide books that benefit our students."
 
The books donated range a variety of genres and reading levels to provide learning opportunities and challenging new reading materials for students of all age levels, from fiction and non-fiction to picture books and novels.

The books are obtained through a Library of Congress program that regularly makes books available to Members of Congress to request and donate to eligible non-profits, local governments, and educational institutions free of charge. 
 
Schools and other interested groups can reach out to Congressman Issa’s Washington office for more information on how they can receive new books for eligible local libraries.
