Attention, Cary High: we need your new and gently used children’s books! During the month of February, WAKE up and Read will collect new and gently-used books for children up to 12 years of age. Sadly, many Wake County children have no books in their home and arrive for kindergarten without the knowledge and experiences they need to excel. Our goal is to ensure that more children from low-income families have the tools and resources they need to become lifelong readers and learners.
Cary High can make a difference in our community just by donating books! Please clear your cluttered shelves of books your kids have outgrown, or bring in favorites of your own, so that we can help Wake County children grow up loving books. Look for the book collection bin at the Main Office – and please help us fill it!
