Donate books through Dec. 9 to the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children’s books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals.
All new or gently used books for ages one through mid-teen are welcome. The need is great for English and Spanish-language board books, the sturdy picture books that can withstand repeated use by very young children.
Book drive organizers have created a list of suggested titles, but will accept all new or gently used children’s books. Additionally, the Bull’s Head Bookshop is offering a twenty-five percent discount for book drive donations. Just mention “Book Fairy” at the time of purchase.
Convenient campus drop-off locations include:
* Davis Library lobby
* Undergraduate Library lobby
* Wilson Library lobby
* Health Sciences Library
* Law Library
* School of Information and Library Science, Manning Hall lobby
* School of Education, Peabody Hall, Student Affairs Office lobby, 1st floor
* School of Social Work, Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building lobby
Friends of the Library will end the drive by accepting donated books at its annual Winter Stories on Thursday, Dec. 9, at 5 p.m., in the lobby of Wilson Library. The program is free and open to the public.
