United Way of Story County is conducting a book drive to collect new or gently used children’s books for the National Day of Action. All of the books collected will be donated to Raising Readers in Story County, a nonprofit organization to promote early literacy throughout Story County. The books will be distributed to children and families through local food pantries, clothing closets, Free Little Libraries, schools, Little Cyclone Camp and other programs serving Story County. A donation box will be at the Colo Public Library during the week of June 16-June 21.
