The Bay County Library System is pleased to continue its long-standing partnership with The Literacy Council of Bay County for the 32nd Annual Gift Of Reading Program, which provides new books to families across Bay County during the holiday season.
Beginning November 1, community members, businesses, and organizations are invited to donate either new books or money to purchase new books. Many area agencies arrange for books to be delivered directly to families. The Literacy Council will also receive a number of these books to use with students throughout the year.
This program is a wonderful opportunity to both introduce a child to reading, and share in the holiday spirit of giving! Thanks to generous community support in 2018, over $3,640 was received, providing over 2,435 books to local children.
Donations are due by Saturday, December 7, 2019, so they can be delivered to local agencies in time for the Holiday Season. You may drop them off at any library branch, the Bookmobile, the library system?s Administration Office located at 500 Center Avenue, Bay City, MI 48708, or at the Literacy Council headquarters located at 1106 S. Madison Ave., Bay City, MI 48708.
If you have any questions, please contact program?s coordinator, Eileen Schulz, at email@example.com or (989) 894-2837 ext. 2225. Get a printable flyer here
