Your contributions of new or gently-used books for children aged 6 months to 5 years are requested.

A new book to take home is given to each child at their well-child exams.

Gently-used books are requested for use in their waiting rooms and exam rooms.

Information is given to parents about the importance of sharing books and reading aloud to their children.

You can place your books in a tub outside of the Missions closet year round.
