The committee annually donates bookmarks, featuring art work from poster contests, to all schools and farm coloring books with organic crayons made from products grown in Alabama to all kindergarten students. This year, elementary school libraries in the county received copies of two picture books. Also, the committee purchases subscriptions to an agricultural magazine for high school libraries and purchases tickets for fifth-grade students to attend American Village located in Montevallo.
