As Book-IT Celebrates its 30 year anniversary, Carrollton Pizza Hut is being especially recognized. The local restaurant  is one of three in the United States that is a finalist in the “BOOK IT! Connection.” Reportedly over 100 children go to the local pizza hut on special event nights, and the pizza restaurant strives to top itself with different events where children and their families can be recognized.

The “Pizza Hut BOOK IT! National Reading Incentive Program” has been dedicated to helping children get interested in reading since its inception in 1984. The Pizza Hut program is the largest and longest-running corporate supported reading program, reaching almost 14 million students in 38,000 elementary schools.
