CBAL and Creston library collecting books for hampers

Web Lead

Again this year, the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL) and the Creston and District Public Library are collecting new or very gently used books for the Book Under Every Tree collection.

“Our goal is to have a book for every child and adult in the families that receive a Christmas hamper from the ministerial association,” said co-ordinator Linda Steward. “Last year, we collected an amazing 750-plus books thanks to your generous donations.”

Please pick up a book for a child or an adult when you are out doing your Christmas shopping and drop it in one of the collection boxes at local stores and schools.

Remember what Dr. Seuss said: ”The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.”
