In the spirit of the season, we’re so thankful to everyone who helped to make this year’s “Bouquets for Books” book drive a big success for our public libraries.

We collected 1,452 new children’s books during the event, which ran Nov. 1-8. Here’s the breakdown by library system and the number of books donated in the respective counties:

• Berks County Public Libraries: 241
• Cumberland County Library System: 158
• Dauphin County Library System: 130
• Hershey Public Library (independent): 125
• Lebanon County Libraries: 182
• Library System of Lancaster County: 309
• York County Library System: 307

In its nine years, Bouquets for Books has collected nearly 14,000 books for the libraries.
