MORRIS – The Environmental and Resource Conservation Office is collecting used children’s books for Bernie’s Book Bank from Monday through Nov. 7.

Practicing reuse, Grundy County residents are being asked to give their outgrown children’s books to this drive, according to a county news release.

Bernie’s Book Bank will take all of the children’s books and put them into the hands of needy children who do not own their own books. They have collected hundreds of thousands of new and gently used books and processed them into age groups for distribution.

All books collected will be redistributed within five days. Books can be dropped off at the Administration Building, 1320 Union St. in Morris, in a collection container in the main entrance adjacent to the receptionist’s desk.

For information, contact Heidi Miller at 815-941-3229 or hmiller@grundyco.org or Karen Campbell at 815-941-3214 or kcampbell@grundyco.org.
