Book Babies Graduation!
On May 29, 2021, Book Harvest held its fourth-annual Book Babies graduation celebration. The Book Babies Class of 2021 was the program’s largest class yet, with 47 graduates from Durham County. Prior to the virtual celebration, Book Harvest staff and volunteers drove to the homes of the graduates and hand-delivered graduation boxes each containing a diploma, books, learning activities, and art supplies. Graduates donned caps and gowns for this very special delivery.
Special guest, Governor Roy Cooper, kicked off the virtual celebration, delivering a hearty message of congratulations for the Book Babies Class of 2021 and their families. “I have no doubt our graduates are ready to take on the world,” shared Governor Cooper, adding that “by being a part of Book Babies and the Book Harvest family, you’re helping to build a brighter future.”
