January 20th is the last day to donate new or gently used kids books (for grades K-12) to benefit SAY Detroit Play Center. The SAY Detroit Play Center is a youth training center on the northeast side of Detroit with a mission of developing readers and great people. The brainchild of Mitch Albom, the center features a state-of-the-art recording studio, a synthetic turf football field donated in part by Matthew Stafford, and a 7,000 square-feet digital learning center, among other amenities. The center is building a lending library and wants our help! Now through Friday, January 20th, donations will be accepted for any gently-used books (reading levels K-12) for young people to increase their reading.
Books can be dropped off at the collection box by the Check-Out Desk or at the five Neighborhood Libraries (Salem-South Lyon District Library, Northville District Library, Novi Public Library, Lyon Township Public Library, and Walled Lake City Library). Thank you for giving the gift of reading!
