The Baltimore County Public Library’s 2017 Toy Drive got under way on Friday.
The annual drive helps less fortunate children and families in the local community. Library patrons can bring a new, unwrapped toy to any branch or special program between Friday, November 17, and Wednesday, December 6.
The gifts will be donated to various local charities benefiting the community.
“While BCPL strives to provide the gift of opportunity each and every day to the citizens of Baltimore County,” said Director Paula Miller, “it’s exciting to assist in providing children with something special and new for the holidays.”
