LaBelle Library Collecting Books For Kids

LABELLE, FL. -- The Barron Library is helping the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle with collecting “gently used” or new books for children. The Barron Library has a box where community members can donate books. 

Books for elementary aged kids are in greatest demand, but books for all ages from preschool to middle school are accepted. Books will be collected from now until the end of December and a special event will be scheduled so that free books can be given out to the children in the LaBelle community. 

Containers of peanut butter and Jjelly are also being collected to  help support the local food bank and will be distributed by United Way and Salvation Army.

Donation boxes are at the following locations: Barron Library, The Kiwanis Thrift Store in LaBelle, LaBelle Chamber of Commerce, Center State Bank and Florida Community Bank. For more information, please call the Kiwanis Thrift Store at 863-675-4043.
