DWSD employees read to third graders as part of partnership with Michigan Science Center
Through a partnership with the Michigan Science Center, the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department (DWSD) is giving away more than 1,000 books in February to Detroit Public Schools Community District (DPSCD) students and members of the community.
The book-giveaway program kicked off this week, when DWSD employees read the three educational books to the Detroit students at the Michigan Science Center.
The books, created by DC Water and licensed by DWSD, also align with Black History Month, as it depicts black and brown character leads and people of color in prominent positions.
All three books, along with goody-bags, are completely free to DPSCD students and members of the public at the Michigan Science Center.
The goody-bags will include the books, a DWSD toy, and a DWSD sticker, along with educational materials for adults on water saving tips, plumbing tips, and other information on frequently asked questions.
Book reading events by DWSD members will continue to be held throughout the month of February, and are opened to the whole family.
