Local News

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WTVO) — One way to help children in the Stateline is to donate books.

Transform Rockford kicked off its holiday book drive.

The non-profit asks residents to donate brand new or lightly used early childhood literature.

Drop off locations include various libraries in the region, and all three Rockford Police District Headquarters.

Organizers say this is an opportunity to support learning in the region.

“The first 1,100 days of a child’s life is really important,” said Transform Rockford Executive Director, David Sidney. “Reading and engaging with caregivers and parents and so this is one way that we can help with building and sustaining that culture in the region.”

This is the second annual Transform Rockford’s Holiday Book Drive. It will run through the end of the month.
