Consider giving a child a book for the holiday

Give a new book to a child this holiday season.

The Clermont County Public Library is hosting “The New Year, New Book” donation drive to give a new book to local children in foster care.

Visit the branch nearest you, pick an ornament from the Giving Tree, buy the book and return it unwrapped with the ornament. Clermont County agencies that work with foster children will distribute the books.

“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.”

Donations will be accepted through Dec. 31.
