Get into the holiday giving spirit with NLC’s annual book drive!!
Every year, for the last twenty-nine years, Nebraska Library Commission staff collect new or used books for children and teens to be donated to the Salvation Army for their Christmas giveaway for youth in need.
We had some fun with a few donated books that were just perfect for #BookFaceFriday. Even better they had holiday themes! We just couldn’t resist. One of this week’s #BookFace models is Talking Book & Braille Service Director, Scott Scholz, who luckily for us, wears a stocking cap regularly to work.
We also got a little help from the downtown Lincoln skyline. Maybe if you’re lucky this Christmas eve, you’ll spot Olive pulling Santa’s sleigh.
The books come from all over. Brought from homes, bought new in stores, or purchased at thrifting excursions, Lincoln City Library’s book sale, or the Scholastic Book Sale.
If you’d like to pitch in, anyone is welcome to drop off donated books. We need them by the end of the day on Dec. 14th, so we can deliver them to the Salvation Army on Friday Dec. 15th.
