LLOYD, Kentucky — There's just something about opening a new book, its spine still stiff, cover shiny and uncreased, pages redolent of freshly milled paper.

Every student at Greysbranch Elementary School went home last week with a shiny new book and the promise of that extra touch of anticipation that goes along with turning the pages for the first time.

The books, more than 350 of them, were courtesy of Brent Craft, a former Greysbranch student who practices law in Cincinnati. Craft, whose family still lives in Greenup County, visited his old school and some of his former teachers during the spring book fair.

Craft knew about the book fair because his aunt, Jenny Weaver, is the Greysbranch librarian. He wondered about children whose families couldn't afford new books.
