Libraries Help Del. Agency Collect Items for Kids

Posted:

NEW CASTLE, Del. (WBOC/AP)- Libraries across Delaware are helping to collect donations of children's books and DVDs to go to kids at a residential treatment center for children with mental health challenges.

The donated books and DVDs will go to the Terry Children's Center in New Castle. The center, which serves children ages 6-12, can serve up to 42 at a time.

Items are being collected all this month at public libraries in Wilmington, Hockessin, Newark, Dover, Bridgeville and Millsboro.

Throughout February, follow the state Children's Department on Twitter @DelKIDS for updates on the progress of the campaign.  Photos will be available throughout the month on Flickr at www.flickr.com/photos/delchildrensdept.

"We're very excited to use social media in a way that allows citizens to become partners in helping the vulnerable children we serve. In many ways, this affirms our belief that children in residential treatment are children that have the same needs hopes and goals shared by all of us," said Karryl McManus, Acting Secretary for the Children's Department.
