Used Book Drive - April 18 - 21
The Wood Acres community is once again supporting the annual used book fair held at New Hampshire Estates (Pre-K through 2nd) and Oakview (3rd through 5th) Elementary Schools, our sister schools, located in Silver Spring.
This is a wonderful way for your family to pass on books that your children loved but have outgrown and to give the gift of reading. This is a much anticipated event for that community which enables their students to buy books of their own at nominal prices or be given books to keep by their teachers. For many of these children, this is their first opportunity to actually own books of their own!
CATEGORIES of books being accepted:
- Children's books for all ages - board books through chapter book (used, but in good conditions)
- Activity books that have not been used (no puzzles or games please)
- NO ADULT BOOKS other than parenting books or cook books
- NO RELIGIOUS BOOKS- think Easter, Hanukah, Christmas
We need volunteers to help sort and pack the books on Tuesday - Thursday from 8:45-10:00. Please contact Susan Mordan if you think you can help out with the book drive. Extra help is needed on Thursday - please consider helping out with this great event.
If you do not want to send your books for donation on the bus with your child, you can drop them off at Susan Mordan's home on April 16 and 17.
Cardboard boxes needed - please contact Susan Mordan (301-263-0419) if you have any small/medium sized boxes to donate.
