Schools to be drop-off sites for Bright Red Bookshelf collection

Schools will be collection drop-off sites for the Bright Red Bookshelf program this month.

The Bright Red Bookshelf program relies on the generosity of sponsors and donors in the Williams Lake area. This year, Heartland Toyota is sponsoring our April Book Drive.

Donated books will be collected from elementary schools in a specially marked red Toyota and placed in a red truck in the showroom.

We are hoping to fill the Toyota truck with donated children’s books.

A major financial donor to the program are the owners of Thyme for Tea, which organizes the Pumpkin Patch in October at their 150 Mile location.

Families enjoy an outing to a farm setting to choose a pumpkin from the field, enjoy puppets and a story on the porch, and take a hay ride.

Daybreak Rotary provides books for the Bright Red Bookshelves and promotes the literacy programs and activities of the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy.

During April, each local elementary school has a red Book Drive box for display and is promoting the project in the school newsletter.

Children’s books for donation can be dropped off at any of the schools.  Books can also be donated at The Public Library and at Curves on Oliver St. Volunteers with the William’s Lake Association for Community Living clean, label and distribute books to the nine Bright Red Bookshelves in the city.

A hearty thank you to all our donors and sponsors who help make the program a success.

April is Book Drive Month.  Donate your used children’s books today.
