When community organizations launched an initiative to collect children's books for underprivileged preschoolers in Cherokee County, Limestone College students, faculty, and staff leaped at the opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of others.

Members of the Limestone Social Work Club have led the way with nearly 600 books collected and donated.
