A Book On Every Bed

For over 10 years, the Champlain Library has been providing children with a new book at Christmas through the “Book on Every Bed” campaign.

The books are supplied to children whose families are recipients of Christmas baskets from the Vankleek Hill and L’Orignal Food Banks. Champlain Library is asking for donations of new books so that these children will wake up Christmas morning with a book on his or her bed.

Here is a list of children which specifies the age, gender and language of each child. If you would like to donate a book, simply complete and submit the form and we will contact you to confirm the information.

All books must be unwrapped and dropped off with a gift bag and tissue paper by Tuesday, November 30. The library also accepts cash donations.

The library is also looking for donations of new magazines or activity books such as colouring books, word search etc. to provide to the local Senior Residences this Christmas. The aim is to help cheer up the residents of Revera Heritage Lodge and Macdonald Residence in Vankleek Hill and Residence Champlain in L’Orignal during these difficult times.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED IN THE BOEB CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR.

YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.
