Atkins Kroll Saipan and the company’s Community Matters program donated $1,000 to representatives of the Joeten-Kiyu Public Library in the Toyota

showroom. The donation will support the 2021 Summer Reading Program’s themed “Tails and Tales.” “Today’s readers may be tomorrow’s leaders,” said Joel Lesh, AK Saipan vice president and general manager. “We hope that our contribution will help children read more over the summer and build healthy reading habits,” added Lesh.

“The JKPL 2021 Summer Reading program will provide weekly prizes for all children who submit their completed weekly activities,” said Erlina Naputi, JKPL library directory. “Library officials will also award prizes for the most books read; prizes for teens for fiction writing; raffle prizes; and so much more,” said Beth Demapan, JKPL Technical Services Librarian.

Community Matters is Atkins Kroll’s community care program. Its purpose is to contribute value and support where possible to non-profit organizations or endeavors in their charitable or community pursuit to help make the CNMI a better place to live, work, and play. Atkins Kroll will accept nominations for its next $1,000 donation from non-profit organizations and other community endeavors.
