Here's a nice Arizona Central story of how urban kids and Native American kids are connecting through books. Each year, high schoolers from the Red Mountain School in Mesa visit the adobe schoolhouse on the Gila River Indian Reservation, just a short bus-ride from their school. The mission library has grown from 600 books to 10,000 books in just a few years.
