Cherokee Villa, in association with three local businesses, has been involved for several years in a program called "My Favorite Book."

Little Sioux Corn Processors, Schoon Construction, and the Best Western La Grande Hacienda purchased the books for first graders at Roosevelt Elementary School.

The books are delivered to the Villa, and the first graders then come to the Villa and read the books to Villa residents. When the kids return to school that day, they take the books with them - theirs to keep.

Connie Boekhout's first grade class recently went to the Villa to read to the residents. A good time was had by all ages.
