Mount Kisco Child Care Center (MKCCC) seeks support from the community in Westchester County to increase the selection in its on-site multi-lingual library. Gently-used and new children’s books in any language for children up to 12 years of age will be accepted.

“Many of the families we serve do not have the income to purchase basic learning tools – including books- for their developing children. That’s why community involvement is imperative,” said Dottie Jordan, MKCCC’s Executive Director.

“We hope that the public will come together to help us reach our goal of building our multi-lingual library by the time the new school year begins so that we can enhance the teaching and learning of the bi-lingual students in our care,” Jordan added. Jordan hopes to secure 500 books in time for the 2010-2011 school year.

In an effort to secure books that are educational in nature, MKCCC has created a wishlist of books in both English and Spanish on Amazon.com. To purchase books that will be delivered directly to MKCCC’s library, visit http://amzn.com/w/7N448N3MN7AW.

Donors are also encouraged to work with their children to go through their own book collection and choose a few that are gently used for the MKCCC library.

MKCCC is located at 95 Radio Circle Drive, Mount Kisco, NY. For additional information about Mount Kisco Child Care Center, visit http://www.mkccc.org or call 914.241.2135.
