SALT LAKE CITY — The Salt Lake City Police Department in partnership with the Salt Lake School District, Salt Lake City Council, Salt Lake City Mayors Office, and the Salt Lake City Public Library are sponsoring a children’s book drive. By investing in kids and encouraging early reading we are hoping to change outcomes for at risk children and prevent future crime.
The book drive will kick off December 11th and will end December 17th. The books that are collected will then be presented to Parkview and Riley Elementary Schools. Please donate new or gently used books at the Salt Lake City and County Building, Salt Lake Public Safety Building, Pioneer Precinct and the Salt Lake City Public Library. We will be holding a press conference to announce the Book Drive, Thursday,December 8th, at 2:00 p.m. at the Public Safety Building. Representatives from all the participating partners will be present to answer questions.
