Shar­ing the gift of lit­er­acy

The Queens County Advance - - OP-ED - Eric Pot­tie

It will be run­ning from Novem­ber 21 – De­cem­ber 31.

Ev­ery book in our col­lec­tion is avail­able for “pur­chase”. You can come into the li­brary and se­lect an item and then do­nate the value of it to the li­brary. You can pick any­thing on the shelf but we will have a large dis­play of new items avail­able to “pur­chase”. You can then ded­i­cate that book to some­one and have a name­plate put in the book. Next, check it out to bor­row and bring it back for every­one else to en­joy.

This is a great way to hon­our a special per­son in your life. You can se­lect their favourite book or au­thor and in­spire oth­ers to read. If you do not want a book­plate, that’s fine too. An­other op­tion is to make a do­na­tion to the li­brary and we’ll pur­chase some­thing new to share. South Shore Pub­lic Li­braries is a reg­is­tered char­ity so tax re­ceipts will be given for all do­na­tions.

These do­na­tions help keep the li­braries book­shelves stocked with new books. Gifts of all sizes are greatly ap­pre­ci­ated. For more in­for­ma­tion, you can call any of our branches.
