Rotaract Club starts book drive to promote child literacy

The Rotaract Club of Western Nevada County began its book drive today to promote early childhood literacy in the community.

The book drive will support the “Read me a story” program of Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital Foundation. The program encourages families to begin reading to their child at an early age to stimulates brain development and improve literacy.

If you have new or gently-used books for children aged six months to six years, you could donate them at several locations in the area: Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital gift shop, Citizen’s Bank of Northern California, The Rood Center, Twin Ridges Home Study Charter, Deer Creek School, Placer Title Company in Grass Valley and Lake of the Pines, Wells Fargo in downtown Grass Valley and The Union. The book drive ends March 31.

The Rotaract Club of Western Nevada County consists of people, 18 to 30 years old, interested in community service and professional development. Rotaract is a program of Rotary International.
