Legacy of Literacy - Children's Book Drive
Children's Book Drive
Each year, in partnership with other Assistance League® Chapters,
we make literacy a priority, with a special emphasis during the month of February. See below for details on how
you can help.
Index School receives over 800 books in March of 2018
It was party time when over 800 books were delivered to the Index school to enhance the library area. Cupcakes were
provided by Cakes By Day.
What Books Can Do
Legacy of Literacy
Children’s Book Drive
The joy of reading broadens our view of the world when we see through the eyes of characters
from other places and times, sharing their hopes and empathizing with their feelings. You can help give these benefits to the children being clothed by the Operation School Bell® and
Kitty Young Auxiliary Adopt a School programs.
When children visit the Operation School Bell facility they are given the opportunity to select a book to take home with their new clothes.
The Adopt a School program assists schools in need of extra resources through providing donated books.
The need for books continues throughout the year, so you may drop off new or gently used children’s books at the Assistance League
Thrift Shop during operating hours.
Please specify that your book donation is to go to the Operation School Bell and Kitty Young Auxiliary programs.
Here are the types of books we are seeking:
Picture Books - Pre-K to 1st grade
Beginner Reading - 1st to 2nd grade
Chapter Books - 3rd to 6th grade
Young Adult Books - Middle to High School
