We’re hosting “The New Year, New Book” donation drive to give books to local children in foster care.

How do I donate?

Donating is easy!
  1. Visit the library branch nearest you
  2. Pick an ornament from the Giving Tree
  3. Buy a book
  4. Return it unwrapped with the ornament by December 31

That’s it!

Clermont County agencies that work with foster children will distribute the books.

 Why should you donate?

“Our mission at the library is to inform, engage and inspire,” said Christine Wick, library director. “Books can inspire children to use their creativity, engage them in new experiences and inform them about their favorite topics. We want to encourage children by showing them books are a great way to discover new things.”
