CHIPPEWA VALLEY, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The L.E. Phillips Library annual holiday “Give a Kid a Book” drive is underway.
In years past, nearly 4,000 books have been donated to children in the Chippewa Valley who might not otherwise have books to call their own.
You can drop off book donations at the local store through December 18 or send a check directly to friends of the library through the 15.
Friends of the Library Program Coordinator Stacy Yearous says she wants to thank its community partners for continuing to provide kids with books this holiday season.
Yearous said, “At a time with everybody being homeschooled or virtual learning, kids are spending a lot of time on screens and it’s really great that if we get them off their screens and reading books and just letting their imaginations run wild with the stories that are in those books it’s just another great way to keep kids learning during this time.”
Aside from the local store, book donations can also be brought to books-a-million in Oak Pointe Plaza.
