Kershaw County Library to Donate 1,000 Books to Families in Need

On Tuesday, December 7, the Kershaw County Library will donate 1,000 books to the Elgin Police Dept’s Caring Hands Foundation and Stover Middle School’s Tigers Take Time to Care holiday project, which helps Kershaw County families in need during the holidays.
The books will be delivered to Blaney Elementary School’s loading dock on Tues. Dec. 7.
Kershaw County Library Director Amy Schofield says, “Providing books for this program continues the Library’s targeted response to the Pandemic— providing quality books for home libraries to families who are the most at risk. Since the summer we have been doing book giveaways using the book mobile in partnership with food distribution from Food for the Soul, United Way of Kershaw County Mobile Nutrition, and the School District. With this partnership, we are excited to provide high-interest, new books to families during the holidays. Books are acquired through First Book Marketplace, a non-profit that offers deeply discounted new books, to organizations serving children in need.”
