Give your outgrown books a new home! Portland Children’s Museum is hosting a month-long book drive in partnership with the Children’s Book Bank this October.
For children in poverty, one of the biggest obstacles to literacy development is the scarcity of books in the home. The Children’s Book Bank addresses this book gap by collecting new and used books to give to preschoolers without books of their own at home. Please bring your new or gently used children’s books with you on your next museum visit and place them in the donation box in the lobby. For more information, please visit www.childrensbookbank.org.
