Give-a-Book Drive on Campus April 9-20

It's time to look through your bookshelves for long-neglected children’s books to donate to Worcester’s annual Give A Book Drive

Assumption and the other Worcester Consortium colleges have been invited again this year to participate in the Give A Book drive to collect new and gently-used books for students in grades K-8. The drive is conducted through the Worcester: The City that Reads initiative. The goal of this community service effort is to collect K-8 level books for the Worcester Public Schools to give to children for summer reading.

New and used books appropriate for children in grades K-8 will be collected April 9-20 at two locations on campus. Collection boxes are located in the d’Alzon Library lobby and in front of the Reach Out Center (near Charlie’s). More than 20,000 books for children were collected citywide last year.

For more information about the campus drive, please contact Public Affairs intern Mike Smith at mismith@assumption.edu or at x7173.
