Chatham Public Libraries Sponsors Book Wish List to Benefit Young Children in Need

DEADLINE: December 15, 2017

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 this link to the Book Wish Tree Amazon  to purchase a listed item. Purchased items will ship to the Chatham Community Library for presentation 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 five 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 NC Pre-K.

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

DEADLINE: The deadline for making purchases is Friday, December 15.
