WAKE Up and Read Children’s Book Drive


Cary Elementary School will be collecting new and gently-used children’s books to benefit the WAKE Up and Read book drive. Our school can make a difference in our community just by donating books! Please clear your cluttered shelves of books your kids have outgrown, or bring in favorites of your own, so that we can help Wake county children grow up loving books.WakeUp&Read_BookDrive

When: March 2 – 29, 2014
Where: Drop books in bin in the main foyer

Book donations should be appropriate for children birth-12 years of age. Used book donations should be gently-used (covers and pages intact, clean, and readable).

The WAKE Up and Read campaign was launched in 2012 to address one of the most critical junctures to lifelong success, reading on grade-level by 3rd grade. This unique community collaboration includes education, civic, philanthropic, and business leaders from across Wake County, all working together to help every child develop the necessary skills for success in school and beyond. Our shared goal is to ensure that more children from low-income families have the tools and resources they need to become lifelong readers and learners. Working together, we can build stronger students and a stronger community. To learn more, visit www.wakeupandread.org.
