Friends of the Marshfield Public Library launches book campaign
For the Hub City Times
MARSHFIELD – The Friends of the Marshfield Public Library’s annual campaign to promote children’s literacy is underway. The Give a Kid a Book program has grown every year since its inception. Last year, nearly 1,300 children’s books were delivered to local service organizations to distribute to the children and families they serve.
Donations of new or gently used children’s books may be brought to the Everett Roehl Marshfield Public Library, 105 S. Maple Ave., Marshfield, through the end of December. Drop them off at the special Give a Kid a Book display or at the circulation desk. Board and baby books, picture books, beginning readers, and books for elementary through middle school students are accepted. This year chapter books for early readers are especially needed. Monetary donations to Give a Kid a Book may also be left at the circulation desk.
