Books being collected for Children's Book Week

November 13, 2005

Monday, Nov. 14, through Sunday, Nov. 20, will mark the 86th annual Children's Book Week. Book week is promoted each year by the Children's Book Council to encourage literacy and love of reading among America's youth.

This year, local home-schooling families have decided to celebrate Children's Book Week by donating books to children in need. Members of H.E.A.R.T.S. (Homeschoolers Educating, Assisting and Reaching out Through Service) will collect children's books to donate.

Many home-schooled children will also create bookmarks to include as well. In honor of book week, the books collected by members of Hagerstown H.E.A.R.T.S. will be delivered to Washington County Head Start.

To participate in the Children's Book Week book drive drop off donations of new or gently-loved books at Wonder Book & Video or Home and School Connection during regular business hours between Nov. 14 and Nov. 20. Business partners who wish to participate this year or in the future may contact Jennifer Hughes at HEARTS-bookdrive@will.to.
