Book Drive – Collection of NEW books for First Book at Glen Carbon Library

The Glen Carbon Library will be collecting NEW children’s books for distribution through First Book St. Louis. The books will be collected at the library during the months of February and March 2015. First Book distributes only new books with the belief that low-income children receive many hand-me-downs and deserve a book that is uniquely theirs.

First Book St. Louis is a chapter of the national nonprofit organization, First Book. Its mission is to provide new books to children in need, addressing one of the most important factors affecting literacy – access to books. Nationwide, First Book has distributed more than 100 million free and low-cost books to disadvantaged children and the programs that serve them. Locally, First Book St. Louis has distributed more than 100,000 new books to low-income children in the greater St. Louis area.

Find them on facebook at First Book.

Collection Connection is your go-to website when you are ready to unload something you’ve been collecting but just don’t know where to go with it. The concept is simple: connect organizations who are holding a collection drive with people who can do the collecting. Old cell phones, prom dresses, Christmas lights, pet supplies… the list goes on and on. Instead of adding your stuff to a landfill, check Collection Connection for a drop off location where your items can be recycled, repurposed or reused!
