The staff at the Ocean Shores Library would like to thank all of the generous people who gave us children’s books to give away to kids for our first Holiday Book Drive. We received over 200 children’s books! We were able to give 67 local kids, ages baby to 12 years, a wrapped book for the holiday. Much thanks to our volunteers who wrapped children’s books for us, Anneka van Doorninck, Kathleen Hansen and Lin Hampton. Much thanks also goes to Jennifer Skinner and Brenda Hunt for being the library elves and volunteering to help with the distribution. We are hoping to make this an annual event so we can continue to give local children the gift of reading.
