Board books for babies
Read-aloud picture books with simple stories for ages 3-6
Easy Readers (Cat in the Hat, etc) for beginning readers
Picture books with more words for ages 7-10
Beginning chapter books for ages 7-10
Advanced chapter books for ages 11 and up

At the Festival, collection crates will be available at all 3 gates, as well as at the volunteer check-in table.
We appreciate your generosity, and look forward to seeing you at the Festival!
