Children’s Book Drive
Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich
Annual Book Give-Away – Wed. Oct 20, 2021
Each October, as part of Greenwich Reads Together, the Greenwich Alliance collects donated Children’s Books to give away to the Boys and Girls Club of Greenwich. In 2019 we collected over 2,000 titles for the 230 children who participate in the after school activities at the Club. Children gather as many books as they can carry and then they take them home to build their own libraries. It was truly an enjoyable afternoon helping each child find the perfect story.
We are grateful to our volunteers from Greenwich High School, Greenwich Library Advisory Club and the teens from the Club, as well as our generous community for the quality of the books that have beeb donated in past years. Also a huge thank you to Greenwich Library, Cos Cob Library, and Perrot Library for their assistance with the book collection!
