Thank you so much for sharing your love of reading with your children at Family Reading Night and with your donations of gently used books. We are donating the books to a local organization called Social FUNdraising and Gatherings. They are collecting books for Edward Gideon school in the Strawberry Mansion section of Philadelphia. They currently have no library at their school (and no librarian). All of the books collected are going to help build this school library. The books will be leveled and placed on shelves. The same group recently finished building an 80,000 book library for the Richard Wright school just down the street from Edward Gideon. If you’d like to get more involved, please follow Social FUNdraising and Gatherings on Facebook.
Here’s a look at all of the donated books! We have picture books, chapter books, books about princesses and superheroes, biographies, informational books about all kinds of animals, and some classic children’s literature all being donated to the Edward Gideon school library. Thank you for your generosity!
