Douglas County Health Department, Boy Scout Troop team up for book drive Sept. 11-Oct. 13 at various county facilities

Posted on September 11, 2023 2023News and Events


What is the first book you ever read to your child? What is the first book they read back to you? If you want to pass on your love of reading, pass on your gently used books to the Douglas County Health Department and Boy Scout Troop 628 book drive.

Between Sept. 11 and Oct. 13, bring your donation of baby, child, or teen books to any of the below Douglas County Facilities. County offices are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

The donated books will stock new “little free libraries” at the two Douglas County Health Department locations in Castle Rock and Lone Tree and will be available at SECOR Cares and at Douglas County Human Services, where families using these services will then have access to free books.

This book drive is part of a statewide effort to encourage reading among families called Reach out and Read Colorado. A child’s brain produces 700 new neural connections every second from birth to age 3. By age 5, 90% of a child’s brain has developed. Reading is a powerful tool during this period of high growth for children, making access to age-appropriate books vital to healthy child development.

Governed by a Board of Health, your Health Department is providing services in sync with the unique needs of Douglas County. Learn more on our website.
