Announcing the 2016 WAKE Up and Read Book Drive!

WakeUp&Read_BookDriveWe need your new and gently used children’s books!

During the month of February, WAKE up and Read will collect new and gently-used books for children ages birth-12. The goal is to collect 110,000 books in one month – enough to share 10 books per child at 10 elementary schools, child care facilities, as well as community centers around the identified schools.

Cary Elementary 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!

Look for the book collection bins in the main foyer – and please help us fill them!
