The School of Social Work is among several UNC departments co-sponsoring a book drive on behalf of the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children’s books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals.
The need is especially 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 gladly accept all new or gently-used books for ages one through mid-teen.
Bull’s Head Bookshop is also partnering on the project and has agreed to offer a 25% discount on books purchased for the book drive. Just mention “Book Fairy” to their staff at the time of purchase to receive your discount.
A collection box will be located in the School of Social Work’s lobby through Thursday, Dec. 9. Please spread the word and consider donating to this very worthy cause.
