Girl Scouts Book Drive

Need to clear space on the bookshelves?  Pass on your old books to other kids! The Lincoln Girl Scouts are hosting a Book Drive to benefit local children during the PTO Book Fair.

Lincoln’s four Girl Scouts troops—from grades K, 1, 2, and 3—are collecting books in partnership with Bernie’s Book Bank. This local organization facilitates the collection, processing, and redistribution of NEW and GENTLY USED children’s books to significantly increase book ownership among at-risk infants, toddlers, and school-age children throughout Chicago land. Visit Bernie’s Book Bank ( for more information.

Look for our collection box in the Lincoln School lobby from Monday, November 18 through Friday November 22.  Looking for more ways to support our PTO and local children?  Please consider buying copies of your child’s favorite stories to donate to our Book Drive. Books truly are gifts that keep on giving, and they will make a difference in a local child’s life. Thank you!
