Book Drive for Pediatric Cancer Patients

Various University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill schools and libraries are sponsoring a book drive until December 8, 2011 on behalf of the Book Fairy, an organization that donates children’s books to the Pediatric Oncology Clinic at UNC Hospitals.

The need is especially great for English and Spanish-language board books, the sturdy picture books that can withstand repeated use by very young children.

Book drive organizers have created a list of suggested titles, but will gladly accept all new or gently-used books for ages one through mid-teen.

The third annual drive follows successful efforts that brought in 2,377 books in 2009 and 2,173 books in 2010.

Campus drop-off locations are:
• Davis Library lobby
• Undergraduate Library lobby
• Wilson Library lobby
• Health Sciences Library
• Law Library
• School of Information and Library Science, Manning Hall lobby
• School of Education, Peabody Hall, Student Affairs Office lobby, 1st floor
• School of Social Work, Tate-Turner-Kuralt Building lobby
For information about the drive, contact Katelyn Ander, UNC Undergraduate Library, 919-962-2559.
