Donate books to Fresno children in this book drive event

FRESNO, Calif. (KSEE/KGPE) – Do you have books that you no longer read? If they are in good condition, Fresno Unified is inviting readers to donate their books to children who need them.

Fresno Unified officials announced they are partnering with Reading Heart, a nonprofit book donation program, to collect gently used children’s books to grow home libraries for Fresno children.

“As we work with our families on our Every Child is a Reader literacy initiative, having books at home is a key piece,” said Superintendent Bob Nelson.

According to officials, books can be dropped off at the EZPak blue bins at Fresno Unified schools. Reading Heart will be redistributing the books at events for Fresno Unified students and other students in the community.

The sixth annual Read-Cycle Book Drive begins on Wednesday and will continue through May 15.
