"Half Pint Library" book drive kicks off
Submitted By Kara Hanko
Half Price Books is launching its 13th Annual Half Pint Library Book Drive beginning now through March 31. This program collects and distributes children's books to families and children in need through local non-profit and community organizations, and for the first time, Half Price Books will match each book donated during the drive. Books donated through the Half Pint Library program provide an escape from the challenges faced by children, while helping to boost literacy outside of school.
All of the books collected during the 6-week drive will be donated to local non-profit and community organizations for children in the community. The drive accepts any type of children's book, including Spanish language books, as long as they are in good condition. Because of the generous donations from our community members, the Half Pint Library program has provided more than 2 million books nationwide for children to share and enjoy.
Through Thursday, March 31, you can drop off books at any Half Price Books location, including Fremont's store at 43473 Boscell Road. For more information about Half Price Books, please visit www.hpb.com.
