There are 3 books available about the subject of the Pack Horse LIbrary Project:  We will give away 10 books.  5 on 12/6 and 5 on 12/13.  Winners can pick which book they’d like.    I will order books on Amazon Smile (to give buying credit to the church) and will have them mailed to the winners. Interested participants will put their name into the chat on the church service or email their name to Robin    and we will draw 5 names on those two dates.

 We will have a discussion board up on Google Classroom.         class code :yfgpnqq
