Teachers union to give Dearborn students 200 books

Students at two schools in Dearborn are set to receive 200 free books Wednesday from a local teachersunion.

The Dearborn Federation of Teachers is donating the books as part of an ongoing effort to provide “a free book for every student in Dearborn,” the union said.

“Through our ongoing partnership with FirstBook, we are excited to get these books into the hands of our students,” DFT President Chris Sipperley said in a statement. “These high-quality books are always a favorite of our students.”

The giveaway starts at Woodworth Middle School about 8:15 a.m. then heads to William Ford Elementary.

The winning schools were drawn from names submitted at the union’s general membership meetings in January and last month, the union said.

DFT said it has distributed more than 4,000 books to Dearborn students.
