Chatham County Public Libraries Announce Book Wish Trees

Post Date:11/30/2017 4:50 PM

‘Tis the season to give back to our community! Chatham County Public Libraries invite County residents to give back to the Chatham County community by sponsoring books from our Book Wish Tree. Each library branch will host a tree. Patrons wishing to sponsor a book simply take a tag from the tree, follow the URL on the tag to the Book Wish Tree Amazon wish list and purchase a listed item. Books purchased from the Book Wish Tree list will be donated to the Chatham Child Development Center in Siler City. Purchased items will ship to the Chatham Community Library, and will be presented to the Chatham Child Development Center just before the holiday break.

The Chatham Child Development Center (CCDC) is an inclusive child care program. It provides year round center-based early childhood education to children ages birth to 5 years old. CCDC operates an “inclusion” model for children who are both typically developing and those with or at risk for developmental delays or disabilities. Services include educational and developmental activities, parent education, physical and occupational therapy, speech therapy, transportation, and before and after school care. The center has a Five Star Child Care License from the North Carolina Division of Child Development, and provides services to children who are eligible for NCPreK.

Spread the holiday cheer and promote literacy with books for our Community’s youngest learners!

The deadline for making purchases is Friday, December 15.
