Give a Book, Get a Book

Give a Book, Get a Book

November 1st is National Family Literacy Day.  Begun in 1994, this day is dedicated to promoting family literacy programs and the importance of literacy and reading. This year, McDonald’s Restaurants are helping to spread the word about family literacy through two programs:  Give a Book, Get a Book, and Happy Meal Day.

In conjunction with books being placed in Happy Meals nationwide next week, McDonald’s of Central Indiana is leading the “Give a Book, Get a Book” campaign.  Book donation sites will be set up around central Indiana, including one right here at the Library!  Between November 1 – 14, drop off a new or gently used children’s book at the Children’s Reference Desk (1st Floor) and receive a Be Our Guest card for a free Happy Meal.  Books for all ages of children will be accepted and will be donated to various children’s literacy organizations in the area.  What a great way to share your love of books and reading with another child!

In addition, we will be hosting a Happy Meal Day on Thursday, Nov. 7 all day in the Library.  There will be coloring sheets, bookmarks and copies of the new Happy Meal books to read.
