Camden County College has partnered with BookSmiles to collect new and gently used books for children up to the 6th grade reading level. The donated books will be given to student teachers and educators to share with their students and build their classroom libraries.
“Books open world of opportunity for children and help develop reading habits that last a lifetime,” said Camden County College President Donald Borden. “Please join me in sharing a passion for reading by dropping some books in the collection bin. Why let those books sit on the shelf when they can help a child learn to read?”
The BookSmiles donation bins are located in the main entrance of the Wolverton Library and near the Lab Coat Café in Halpern Hall on the Blackwood Campus.
Since last October, more than 600 books have been collected at CCC, including Spanish language titles.
