Help the Children of Flint Affected by the Water Crisis Read and Succeed

Donate a NEW Children’s Book to the OCC Libraries Early Literacy Book Drive.

Inspired by Flint pediatrician, activist, and author Dr. Mona Hanna- Attisha’s visit to OCC, the OCC Libraries are collecting NEW children’s books suitable for infants through age 5.

Book donations will be given to the Flint and Genesee Literacy Network, a non-profit organization that supports early literacy initiatives.

Early literacy is important for brain development and strengthening reading skills that contribute to success.

Drop off your donation of a NEW children’s book at any OCC Campus Library through December 16th.
