Example of a well-loved book needing replacement

Update: Thank you to all who donated to our year-end fundraiser! With donations totaling $3,080 you’ve helped us replace 163 of the best-loved children’s books at Cedar Mill and Bethany Community Libraries.

Who would YOU be if you’d never read The Giving Tree? What would your childhood have been like without A Wrinkle in Time or Where the Wild Things Are? What if you’d never had a friend in Ramona or Beezus? Every day, parents depend on Cedar Mill and Bethany Community Libraries to provide the stories that build character, teach essential life lessons and make childhood so special.  1.3 million children’s books are checked out from our libraries each year.  The most beloved are retired after a time and must be replaced.

Help us replace 500 children’s books by making your year-end, tax-deductible donation here and choosing “Use my gift for children’s books.”
