Once Upon A Time .... September's Book Drive Begins!

September's Community Outreach Event 

We Mommies all do our best to encourage reading. We swap, take out, purchase, and gift numerous books through out our little one's life. As much as we love those adventures and the seeds of knowledge they plant in their minds, we cannot ignore the overflowing and spill out from our bookshelves.   It's inevitable and it happens to us all.  We understand all those happy memories that are looming within the binds. We know those stories that their words emerged from. We can relate to the favorites that were read so much they are now apart of your memory.  

Passing on our books is never easy but SaratogaCountyMommies hopes to make it a little less painless. Let us help you make room on your shelves for some new adventures and stories.  Please consider donating your like new (good shape) books to our September Book Drive which is being held from September 1st - September 30th.  The books will be donated to the Saratoga County Equal Opportunity Council (EOC) to be used in programs such as Headstart, given to children and siblings to encourage literacy, and used in the county's offices and programs.  Preschool and Kindergarten aged books are high in need however all books for children are welcome. 

Members ... please bring them to any event on our calendar throughout the month. You can also reply to the Book Drive Discussion to make other arrangements.
