Christmas came early for public libraries in the six counties that Royer’s serves.
Our seventh annual “Bouquets for Books” collected 1,296 new children’s books for the libraries in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties.
Bouquets for Books took place Nov. 2-10. Customers received a free bouquet for each book they donated, up to three per family per visit.
We presented the books to the county library systems and to the independent Hershey Public Library. Here is the distribution:
• Berks County Public Libraries: 175
• Cumberland County Library System: 214
• Dauphin County Library System: 146
• Hershey Public Library: 68
• Lebanon County Libraries: 134
• Library System of Lancaster County: 374
• York County Library System: 185
In its history, Bouquets for Books has collected more than 10,000 books for the libraries.
