Project Bookshelf

Share the magic of books with a child who might not otherwise receive a book during the holidays. Columbia Heights Library will be accepting books as part of Anoka County’s Project Bookshelf during the month of November. Donated books are distributed to children and young adults in need through the SACA Food Shelf. To participate, bring new, unwrapped books for children and young adults to Columbia Heights Library, 3939 Central Ave. NE, through Dec. 10. This project is co-sponsored by the Friends of Columbia Heights Library.
