Looking to weed out the books that your children are done reading? Then consider donating them to the 7th annual Link to Literacy Children’s Book Drive which runs until September 30th.

The annual drive collects donations of gently used children’s books from the community to distribute to children in need in the Windsor/ Essex County area schools for them to to take home to keep.

You are asked to ensure that the books are in good condition. The organizers request that no textbooks or encyclopedias be donated.  Books that are suitable for ages 4 to 14 are welcome.

Since this initiative began in 2008 organizer Tamye Machina says that she has collected over 22,000 children’s books. Last year alone 6,000 books were collected.

If you have any books that you wish to donate, you can contact Tamye at 519-978-1517, or you can connect with her on her Facebook page or on Twitter @LinkToLiteracy.
