Governor's Wife Delivers Books to Local School

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Ala. -

First Lady Dianne Bentley made a stop at Collins Rhodes Elementary School Tuesday morning, with an exciting delivery.

She donated 100 books to the school's library.

Every year, Scholastic Company gives her 500 books that she distributes to schools across the state.

She says she chose Collins Rhodes because it was a torchbearer school in recent years.

Mrs. Bentley says she loves talking to students about the importance of reading.

Mrs. Bentley spoke to a 4th grade class where the students are in the process of studying Alabama History. They were all curious about what it was like to live in the Governor's Mansion.
