Some of our Scholastic Book Fair books went to Kids Come First, a health clinic in Ontario for kids of all ages. They believe that reading is also an important part of being healthy, so visitors to the clinic get books! What a great idea!
Yesterday afternoon, I met with Beverly Speak, who gave me a tour of the clinic, and presented her with a boxful of brand new Scholastic titles that we earned through our book fair. Everyone in the clinic was excited to have them.
Kids Come First always needs new and gently used books, so if you have any that you’d like to donate, bring them by the library, and I’ll make sure they get to the clinic. The clinic serves teens all the time, but they have special ‘teen’ hours on Thursday evenings from 3:30-7:30 PM. They are located at 1501A Bon View (between Francis and Mission), in Ontario. They have a great, welcoming staff whose goal is to help kids!
