March 15 - April 28, 2017
The Child Care Council of Westchester and Westchester Association for the Education of Young Children (WAEYC) celebrate the Week of the Young Child with our 9th Annual Children’s Book Drive.
Learning to read and write starts in early childhood when children have many opportunities to hear books read to them. This forms the basis for later school success. Many child care programs in Westchester County do not have enough books. They need your help.
From March 15—April 28, 2017, please donate slightly used books at the Child Care Council and other child care programs that are collection sites. The Child Care Council is located at 313 Central Park Avenue, Scarsdale, New York (Mon-Fri, 9am-5pm; call for Saturday hours).
Please only donate books in very good condition that can be used and enjoyed by other children. We especially welcome books depicting diverse ages, abilities and cultures, for children ages zero to 12.
