Stocking the book cabinet. We give away new and gently used books suitable for children up to 12 years old, in English and French.
Books in demand
We are currently seeking donations of new or nearly new books suitable for children up to age 12. We have an especially high demand for:
- Board books for babies (books that can be chewed, but are not already chewed!)
- Books in French for children up to age 12
- Graphic novels for children up to age 12
- Books featuring children from a variety of ethnic communities
Our aim is to give the children we serve books that are of the same quality as the books we give as presents to the special children in our lives. We respectfully decline:
- Books that are in poor condition – torn pages or covers, excessive writing, mildew
- Books that once belonged to a library
- Teen and young adult fiction
- Text books
- Audio books
- Recorded music
