Children’s Book Drive Ends Dec 17

The City of Piedmont and the Piedmont Unified School District are joining with Oakland Rotary’s KinderPrep and the East Bay Children’s Book Project to collect books for children who lack access to reading materials. New or gently used books for children in Kindergarten through second grade are especially desired but books for students up to twelfth grade are also welcome.

The book drive is specifically seeking these books:

Any Pete the Cat book in the series.

Anything by Mo Willems (Pigeon series)

Any Dr. Seuss book

Anything by Laura Numeroff with title “If You Give a …..”

Any book on this website:

Drop off books at Piedmont City Hall on weekdays until December 17th from 8:30 a.m. to Noon and 1:00-5:00 p.m. Book bins will also be available at Piedmont’s three elementary school sites during school hours from November 30th to December 11th.

The Book Drive will benefit two local organizations: Oakland Rotary’s KinderPrep program, which is committed to fostering literacy and a love of reading in early childhood and the East Bay Children’s Book Project, which helps build literacy by putting books into the hands of children who have little or no access to them.

For more information on the Holiday Children’s Book Drive, please contact the City Clerk’s office at (510) 420-3040 or the Superintendent’s Office at (510) 594-2614.
