The students are responsible for reviewing the 2,000 books, establishing a grade level and marking the books appropriately. The ongoing project is part of a partnership with the Cary Rotary Club to support at risk students in Wake County.

There are many children in Wake County that do not have books in their home to read. The Read a Book, Get a Book program provides gently used books to these students.
