Great Falls Kiwanis Club's Book Drive

Posted: Updated:

The Great Falls Kiwanis Club is soliciting children's books for a new 'Book Nook' the organization has established at West Elementary.

If you would like to contribute, the club is asking that new or gently used books- appropriate for kids in grades Kindergarten through sixth- be dropped off at the Great Falls Tribune any day of the work-week during working hours. The Nook will open on Thursday, March 3rd.

The Club would like to extend their appreciation to the members of the Great Falls High School Key Club who donated their time refurbishing book shelves for the project.

To connect with the organization, or to get involved, follow the Kiwanis Club of Great Falls on Facebook.
