United Way Book Drive

The North Texas Area United Way will kick off a city-wide book drive Monday, August 18. United Way is partnering with Friends of the Library, the Wichita Falls Public Library and the Rotary Clubs to provide free books for day care centers and children in the community ages five and under. 


Day care centers struggle to keep enough age-appropriate books available for children, according to United Way research. More than 100 licensed child care providers in the Wichita Falls area will be given the opportunity to select book for their centers. The book drive will end September 8, and the books collected will be given to United Way for Distribution.
