Turning the tide on poverty in Hertford County

Representatives of the Delta Academy mentoring program receive bags of books from Cooperative Extension's Turning the Tide program.

In Hertford County, public school students aren’t lugging heavy book bags home. Though literacy is a problem there, the county schools don’t have enough textbooks to go around, so students share books during the school day, rather than taking them home. But an anti-poverty effort of N.C. Cooperative Extension in Hertford County is improving young people’s access to books.
