Book Drive 2015 Flyer

From now until Friday, November 20th we are collecting new or gently used books for children ages 0-7 years old. They will be donated to Children’s Institute, Inc. You can read more about them here.

Book Drive BooksEvery year Children’s Institute gives a holiday party for families with young children who are living in South Los Angeles in poverty. Mattel donates toys, but the children receive no books!

According to Reading Is Fundamental, 60% of kindergarteners in low-income families do not have a single age-appropriate book in their home. Please give the gift of a book to one of these children who have no books in their homes.

 

From now until Friday, please bring books for the children to the colorful box in the library lobby. We can make a difference one book at a time, one child at a time!
