Student Engagement seeking children's book donations

child reading a bookThe Office of Student Engagement is collecting new and like-new children's books, for readers ages 4-10 years old, for the 2018 MLK Day of Service Read-In event in January.  We've volunteered at this amazing event for the past four years, where 150 kids spend a Saturday morning learning about the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and reading with volunteers.  Each kid gets to take home a bag of books, and we are low on book donations this year – especially for the 8- to 10-year-old group. Donations will be accepted through Dec. 20.  

Book Donation Locations:

  • Hanes Student Commons in the Kenan Student Life Offices
  • Donation box outside the Dining Hall entrance
  • Staff Council's Employee Holiday Potluck on Dec. 14

Please contact Lauren Iley-Spear ( for any questions, to request a donation pick up, or if you have a 4- to 10-year-old who would like to attend the event on Jan. 20.
