The Snohomish County League’s Civics Education Committee has been busy distributing the civics textbook, The State We’re In: Washington, for grades 3-6, to local school districts and public libraries. A grant from the LWVWA Education Fund helped purchase half of the books that were distributed, and the LWVSC supplied the rest.
The Everett Public Library was happy to receive the new books to add to their circulation as well as display materials to encourage families to learn how to be a good citizen. The Sno-Isle library branches also welcomed the book and signage donations. 20 new books are now in public library circulation!
The goal of the project is to reach a greater audience and spread the opportunity for kids to learn civics across a large swath of city and rural schools in our county, from Edmonds to Index.
Each local school district curriculum department received copies of the book as well. In total, we have distributed 116 textbooks!
