LOUISA COUNTY, Va. (WVIR) - Teachers in Louisa County got to pick out some new books for their classrooms Wednesday.

Louisa County Public Schools provided each teacher with a $50 voucher to shop for books from the Green Valley Book Fair.

Assistant Superintendent Justin Grigg says the goal is to help break down barriers inside the classroom.

“A lot of our students may not have the capability or means to have fresh books in their hands,” Grigg said. “Making sure that our teachers have access to these books in their classroom libraries, all of our students will benefit by learning about different cultures, different regions, different topics to really showcase the love of reading.”

This is the fourth year the district and Green Valley Books have partnered to do this.
