The book fairs take place at seven Title 1 schools between March 14 and 18. Each student will receive two free books and each teacher will receive 10.

The first round of the lounge, which began on Jan. 3 and visited schools in Philadelphia, New York, New Jersey and Maryland, donated more than 1,000 books, 10,000 notebooks, 100,000 writing utensils and 15,000 art and craft materials. The six new stops added to the traveling lounge are Dallas on March 10, Houston on March 11, Santa Fe, N.M. on March 15, Phoenix on March 16, Reno, Nev. on March 18 and Los Angeles on March 22.
