COLORADO SPRINGS — Today, all K-5 students at three Colorado Springs elementary schools received free books via the "If You Give A Child A Book program."

The program was developed locally by KOAA News5, E.W. Scripps, and the Scripps Howard Foundation. It is in partnership with Scholastic Books, which provided all of the titles from their most popular selections in all grades and age groups.

Each student went home with 4 to 5 books each.

The schools that received books are Pikes Peak Elementary, West Elementary, and Will Rogers Elementary.

Funding for the book giveaway was provided by AFCEA Rocky Mountain Chapter, a non-profit philanthropic organization that focuses much of its outreach on education from Kindergarten through college.
