The Mesquite Chamber of Commerce held a book sale on Saturday, June 21 at the Mesquite Library to benefit a reading program for local students.

The community support was wonderful. Several thousand books were donated and over 1,500 books were sold on Saturday, bringing in over $1,000 for our kids.

The Chamber wishes to thank the community for their support, the Mesquite Library for graciously hosting the event and all of the outstanding volunteers who represented not only the Chamber, but several other non-profit organizations. It was truly a community effort.

All proceeds from the book sales go to the Eureka Community Initiative, a non-profit charitable foundation established by the Eureka Casino Resort. The money raised at this event will help fund a special summer reading program at Virgin Valley Elementary School. The program targets children who are not reading at their appropriate grade level.
