Helping recovery, book by book

One of the ways your congressional office is helping the recovery is to replace books that libraries and schools lost during Typhoon Mangkhut and Super Typhoon Yutu. This week, Congressional intern Michael Ortizo, above, was selecting books at the Library of Congress to fill empty shelves in the Marianas. Since starting the Let’s Read! program, when I first came to Congress ten years ago, we have collected over 50,000 books for delivery to Marianas libraries, schools, nonprofits, and various other organizations.
