Education Minnesota - Redwood Falls is hosting a book drive today during the RVHS boys and girls basketball doubleheader in the Redwood Valley schools gym.

The public is asked to bring new or gently used children’s books for the Redwood Area Food Shelf book shelf. Those who bring a book to donate will receive a ticket for free popcorn.

According to Renee Estebo, who coordinates the food shelf book shelf, books are accepted throughout the year and quickly disappear.

Books for toddlers and preschoolers are especially sought at this time.

All are encouraged during “I Love to Read” month to help make literacy a priority in the community by donating this Friday.
