As a part of Sunshine Coast Libraries Christmas celebrations, the annual Books4Kids Christmas book drive will begin on November 12.

Sunshine Coast Libraries and the Salvation Army will once again join forces to promote literacy and spread the Christmas cheer to less fortunate children around the region.

The program is now in its 18th year and helping out is easy.

You simply buy a new children’s book and drop it into any Sunshine Coast Library. You don’t even have to wrap it as the Salvation Army will look after those duties.

The books will be distributed to less fortunate children and families by the Salvation Army through their Santa workshops at Maroochydore and Caloundra.

The drive begins on November 12 and will run until December 17.

For more information, head to the Library website.
