Kent State Rotaract Club Collecting Book Donations for Children

Kent State University’s Rotaract Club is holding a children’s book drive during the month of April and is now accepting donations to benefit children in surrounding areas.

The club is gathering books in good condition for children from newborn to third grade and will be accepting both new and gently used books.

To get involved, drop off your donations at the circulation desk on the first floor of University Library. The club’s goal is to collect 100 books from now through Wednesday, April 20

Once the books are collected, the Kent State Rotaract Club will assemble bookshelves to be put in various locations in the surrounding area, such as grocery stores and offices, for children to read as they please.

The Kent State Rotaract Club’s vision is to focus on early childhood education by creating and supporting positive educational experiences for children in the community.
