From March 1 until March 16, drop new children’s books off at local libraries for the second Annual Tenikka’s books for Kids. All library locations in Jacksonville, St. Johns County and Nassau County are participating. There are several easy ways for you to donate!
Literacy is a vitally important tool for kids to succeed, yet many underprivileged children in our area don’t have books on their own. Action News Jax Family Focus, 95.1 WAPE, 96.9 The Eagle and the Jacksonville Public Library are teaming up to change that.
Tenikka’s Books for Kids (#TB4K) is a book drive collecting new children’s books for our libraries summer learning programs. All eligible books will be given out to children enrolled in the programs so that they can have reading materials of their own.

1. You can donate books at any Jacksonville, St. Johns County or Nassau County Public Library location from March 1 until March 16. You can also drop books off at the Action News Jax studios, 95.1 WAPE, and 96.9 The Eagle studios.
