Annual Tree of Giving Book Drive

The Mark O. Hatfield Library, Willamette Store, and Student Athlete Advisory Committee have teamed together for our sixth annual Tree of Giving Book Drive.  It is being held now through December 16th and will benefit Harriet Elementary School.

The Willamette Store and Hatfield Library are accepting new, unwrapped books appropriate for elementary children.  We are also collecting new hats, scarves, and gloves for the school.  Harriet Elementary School is in need of:

  • Spanish-language books for all levels, both fiction and non fiction
  • DK Readers series
  • “How-To” art books
  • Joke books, particularly in Spanish
  • Picture books

The Willamette Store is offering a 25% discount on any children’s or young adult book purchased for the Tree of Giving project from now thru December 16th at 5p.m. Donations can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk in the library, or in the donation box at The Willamette Store.

And please visit our Tree of Giving located near the entrance of the library, and see the beautiful ornaments adorning it.  For every book donated, we add one ornament to our Tree of giving.
