Westshore 1000×5 Children’s Book Recycling Project

The Westshore “1000 X 5” Children’s Book Recycling Project was started in September 2012.  Through this initiative, gently-used children’s picture books are collected from the community, screened for suitability, counted, labelled, sorted, and bagged for distribution to young children (birth-5 years) and their families in the Westshore. Each week, a small, but dedicated, group of volunteers screen, sort, clean and package gift bags of books for distribution by local family serving agencies in the Westshore area.
