The Book Warehouse, located at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Jeffersonville, recently held a book drive for the Fayette County Board of Developmental Disabilities Early Intervention students.

Members of the community were able to show support for the Early Intervention classroom and students by purchasing books which will be donated directly to this group. In the end, two large boxes completely full of age-appropriate books, puzzles, audiobooks and activities were donated.

Sharing a love of literature with the very youngest is a priority for the FCBDD. A recent addition of a Little Free Library is located at the Starting Gate building on Leesburg Avenue in Washington C.H. This will continue to foster the idea that books have a magic that begs to be shared.

Through the generosity of the Book Warehouse and the constant support of this outstanding community, we can continue to share this magic with the children being served. FCBDD is so very humbled by the outpouring of love and the gift of literacy for our Early Intervention children and their families. A big thank you to the Book Warehouse for holding this book drive, and an even bigger thank you to every single person from our community who supported it by donating a book.
