Children’s Books

Reading is essential to the growth of a child it inspires the imagination, educates them to the world, and expands their ability to express oneself.

New Home 2

Children love to read and we want to encourage reading. Donated books are primarily for children 10 and younger. They should be picture books that capture imagination of young readers, or chapter books that inspire young minds to want to read more often. Used books should be in good condition. New books will be included in our birthday bags if they are not too large for the bag.

To donate books, please deliver them to the Food Closet.

Bailey’s Books

Bailey’s Books Library was established in memory of a young 13 year old boy. Donated books should be spiritual, encouraging, motivating, or inspiring. These books are for adults as well as children. They can even be “How To” books to engage their minds.
