On Monday, Dec. 17, U.S. Rep. Paul Tonko delivered nearly two dozen books to the Library Media Center at Bethlehem Central Middle School. The nearly $800 book donation from the Library of Congress included several non-fiction titles related to science and social studies.

Tonko, who serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, also had the chance to speak to eighth-grade students about his path to Congress and his work on energy policy. Students in the BCMS Intro to Engineering Design classes recently finished a unit on renewable energy and were able to have some one-on-one conversation with the lawmaker about geothermal, wind and solar energy alternatives. Thank you, Congressman Tonko, for your interest in our students and your support of our schools.
