Give The Gift of Stories You Love

We know that it's only the beginning of November, but we bet that at least some of you have started your holiday shopping lists. We ask that you help us to spread the joy of reading by adding a childrens' book to that list. 

Each year the Cambridge Public Library collects new books to give to children in transitional housing during the holiday season. You can read more about the history of this annual event on an earlier post .

This year Porter Square Books is giving a 20% discount on any books purchased for this project, but of course you can purchase your book (or books!) anywhere. Then just drop them off at any Cambridge Public Library location.

For those of you who want to take a hands-on approach to this project, there will be wrapping parties in the Beech Room at the Main Library on November 29 from 6-8pm, November 30 from 10am to noon and on December 7 from 10am to noon. Please join us at any of these times to wrap gifts and help to spread the gift of stories.

For questions or more information on this year's drive call 617-349-4038.

There are always great things happening at the library! For more information on how you can get involved with the Friends and help to support our Cambridge libraries click here.
