PASSIONATE readers are invited to embark on a heart-warming journey of generosity this Christmas by supporting the Books4Kids appeal initiated by Sunshine Coast Council Libraries.
Community members are urged to join in and contribute to creating positive new chapters in the lives of children in need by donating a book that can be used as a Christmas gift.
Sunshine Coast Council Community Portfolio Councillor David Law said the campaign had been running since 2000 and helped many families.
“This wonderful initiative has made it possible for thousands of children across the region to unwrap the magic of books during the holiday season, with more than 12,000 books distributed to children in need to date,” Cr Law said.
“Please get involved to help Sunshine Coast Libraries ensure all homes across the region have a happy holiday with access to books, by supporting the 2023 Books4Kids appeal.
“From now until December 13 all Sunshine Coast Council Libraries will accept donations of new children’s or young adult fiction and non-fiction books.”
The donations will find their way into the hands of families in need thanks to participating charities across the region – just in time for Santa’s yearly visit.
Sunshine Coast Libraries are committed to making sure that literacy and recreational reading is accessible to everyone in our community.
What: Donate a new children’s or youth book as a Christmas gift
Time: Donations accepted between now and December 13
Where: All Sunshine Coast Library locations
