CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — Neighborhood reading centers across Chattanooga have been stocked with new books to help occupy the minds of children over the summer.

The United Way of Greater Chattanooga is behind the initiative to distribute 3,000 books to centers that are within walking distance for most children in the city.

United Way official Elizabeth Tallman told The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that the centers should be stocked and ready to open Saturday.

Tallman said there are a variety of books for school-age children, from kindergarten to 12th grade.
