Literacy Lambton asks you to Give-a-Book

Literacy Lambton hopes to share the love of reading with thousands of children through this year’s book giveaway.

Executive director Tracy Pound hopes to collect thousands of new unpackaged books next month.

“The campaign has just started,” Pound said. “It will run until December 6th and we are encouraging the community to buy a new book and have it delivered, either from Book Keeper at Northgate Plaza, Coles at Lambton Mall or you can come to Kiva from our office in Lochiel Nice Community Centre.”

Monetary donations are also accepted, Pound said.

“If you don’t have the opportunity to go out and buy a book, one way you can help is by “

Pound said their collection is for ages 0 to 18, so they need books for parents to read to newborns until teens are interested.

“Right now, I’d say there’s a need for baby blackboard writing, and early grades 1 to 4.”

Online donations of $25 or more will instantly receive a printable tax receipt.

“Typically, we don’t really know what the requirements are, so there can be gaps between age groups. [Donations] Let’s go out and buy more baby books or whatever. “

Pound hopes to collect the same amount or more than last year.

“Last year, Sarnia-Lombton really took up the challenge. We set the bar very high, or at least I think it was 3,000 books, the end result was 3,104 books, and we also developed frontline agency partners to help us get books to the community 20 to 26 in the hands of the children.”

Pound says The Book Keeper offers a special bonus.

“[Owner] Susan Chamberlain is offering 20% ​​off all books purchased there and donated directly to the campaign. “
