Boca Raton Elementary opens Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room

Presidential hopeful's foundation promotes reading

BOCA RATON - Children at one Boca Raton school have a new place to get lost in a book thanks to the help of one presidential candidate.

Friday, Boca Raton Elementary opened its Dr. Ben Carson Reading Room. 

The retired neurosurgeon founded the Ben Carson Reading Project to raise money to buy books and create rooms where children can read comfortably at school.

The goal is to make reading fun. The room is different than the library because it has books students may find interesting instead of something they'd have to research.

Dr. and Mrs. Donald Janower donated the money for this reading room.

Carson was not at the school for the unveiling, but his wife, Candy, was.
