Learn more about an outing The Arc of Greater Boone County took a few weeks ago from Marcia Clutter.

One of the favorite experiences that the Literacy Students at The Arc of Greater Boone County enjoy is their annual visit to the Indy Reads Books store in downtown Indianapolis. Before these visits began, most of these students had never before purchased a book. Now, thanks to the Literacy program at The Arc they look forward to shopping for books, and thanks to Indy Reads Books, they are able to purchase some books that interest them with the help of a small gift certificate that the bookstore distributes to each visiting student. This book shopping trip is even more special, as the students get to stop for lunch – a great social opportunity, where they enjoy good food and chatting with their instructors and fellow students about the books that they like!
