Reach out and Read Book Drive

The Indian Valley Public Library is partnering with Draeger in their Fifth Annual Reach out and Read book drive. We are asking for donations of NEW board books that will be given to parents of children in the NCIU at St. Christopher’s Hospital. Donations can be brought to the library between September 4 and 21 and placed directly in the incubator located in the Children’s Room. Don’t have time to shop for new books? Donate money to the library during the collection period and we will purchase board books for the drive. Email abuckley@ivpl.org for more information.
