henry county schools get 6,000 books

HENRY COUNTY, Ga. (CBS46) It was books galore for school across Henry County on Thursday when Clifford The Big Red Dog surprised elementary students with thousands of new books.

All 28 of the elementary schools across the county received approximately 6,000 books. To the children's surprise, Clifford arrived at Fairview Elementary to balloons, confetti, cheerleaders and a marching band!

Administrators hope the new books will spark a love of reading in the children that they will carry throughout their lives.
