Children's Books Wanted!

From Daphne Lee via Facebook :
Book Haven & The Dram Projects are joining forces to hold a book drive to benefit underprivileged communities.

When: Sunday, 16th August 2009

Where: Meeting Room, Block 150, Villa Flora, Jalan Burhanuddin Helmi, Taman Tun Dr Ismail, 60000 Kuala Lumpur.

Time: 10am-5pm

If you have unused children's books (in English), in excellent condition and suitable for ages 5 to 15, we can give them good homes.

The communities we are helping to build libraries:

1. New Life Care Centre, Port Dickson (a foster-care home)
2. Baitul Izzah Orphanage, Pinngir TTDI
3. Zomi & Zophie (Myanmarese) Refugee Schools
4. Chin (Myanmarese) Refugee School
5. YKPM in Prima Selayang, an NGO for the urban poor.

The Dram Projects will also be fundraising for its reading initiatives by selling 2nd hand and nearly-new books.

If you or your friends wish to donate children's books (towards building libraries) or books for mature readers (for The Dram Projects' sale), please let us know. We can even come to pick the books up.

Thank you for the lovely post.

I have one year old daughter who is very bright for her age and she insists that I read to her every night. At this rate I have run out of books to read to her. Can you tell me a good place to buy story books for children?
