Give generously for Smith Family book drive

Residents in the Moreton Bay Region are being encouraged to give generously for the annual Smith Family Donate a Book Appeal at Moreton Bay Region Libraries.

Moreton Bay Regional Council Mayor Allan Sutherland said from October 19 to December 4 the region’s libraries would be accepting new books and gold coin donations on behalf of The Smith Family’s support program.

“To date, residents in the Moreton Bay Region have helped donate more than 6,380 books and generously raised more than $8,700, and I’m again encouraging residents to support this fantastic cause,” Mayor Sutherland said.  “Donations can be made at any Moreton Bay Region Library and proceeds will go directly to families throughout the region.”

The Moreton Bay Region’s book appeal is part of a partnership between Moreton Bay Regional Council and The Smith Family towards improving childhood literacy throughout the region.
