Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County Family and Books project hosted a Book Drive in late July and early August. The goal was to collect new and gently used childrenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s books to redistribute them to children within our community.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have collected over 650 books and the book drive was more successful than I had hoped for thanks to the concerned people of our communityÃ¢â‚¬Â says Chena Tucker, the book drive organizer.
The books are currently being distributed to schools and centers within our area. Also, Literacy Volunteers of Oswego County will be hosting a booth at the Farnham Family Fun Day on Saturday, September 20th at Breitbeck Park between 1:00 and 4:00 and invites anyone to come down and get a free book!
Recently we dropped off books to the Salvation Army for their after school youth program pictured below.
