The Santa Fe Police Department has teamed up with Santa Fe Public Libraries to collect children’s books for the Boys and Girls Club. Decorated boxes are located in the city’s three library branches for the collection of new and gently used books. All types of children's books are needed, including story books, educational books and those in both English and Spanish.
Pictured are kids helping kids to get books. The book drive runs from March 15-April 15. In the pictures, a young Southside Branch volunteer gives her time to do some artwork for the worthy cause and we took a picture of our first donators who love coming to the library to check out books and attend our Books and Babies and Preschool story time programs.
The Santa Fe Public Library at all three locations are participating: the Main Library, 145 Washington, Oliver La Farge Branch Library, 1730 Llano St., and Southside Library, 6599 Jaguar Dr. Here at our Southside Branch, youth volunteers worked on getting the box decorated for our generous patrons.
Stop in and share your books.
