Library and Service Club partner for ‘Gift of Reading’ project
Tecumseh District Library and Tecumseh Service Club are teaming up for the “Gift of Reading” project to provide new books for children, ‘tweens (ten- to 12-year-olds), and teens to add to the Service Club’s annual Christmas baskets of food, clothing, and toys. Anyone wishing to participate in the project this year may do so in two ways: Purchase new children’s, ‘tween, or teen paperbacks and bring the unwrapped books to the library’s circulation desk before Monday, Dec. 17. Donors are asked not to deposit the gift books in the book-drops.Or, send a tax-deductible check payable to the Tecumseh Service Club to the Tecumseh District Library, 215 N. Ottawa St., Tecumseh MI 49286, in care of “The Gift of Reading” by Monday, Dec. 17. Designated shoppers from the Service Club will use these monetary donations to buy additional books for the project.The library staff will add donated books to the “Gift of Reading” display and, in mid-December, the books will be delivered to the Service Club, whose volunteers will add the books to the Christmas baskets for distribution throughout the Tecumseh area.
