DECATUR, GA– DeKalb Recreation, Parks and Cultural Affairs’ Friends of Flat Shoals Park will host its annual “Book it to the Park” book drive on Saturday, July 9 10 a.m. to
1 p.m. at Flat Shoals Park, 4522 Flat Shoals Pkwy. Decatur.
The Friends of Flat Shoals Park began hosting the “Book it to the Park” event shortly after the installation of the new book box in 2017. Officials say the book box has been a success and is heavily utilized by youths in the community.
In an effort to support literacy and reach the goal of receiving 300 books, community members are invited to bring donations of new and gently used children’s books to the event.
All donated books will provide a way to continually replenish the children books in the book box. Participants will also enjoy an array of children’s activities including rock painting, a chalk walk and StoryWalk ®.
