Now through Sunday, when you drop off used children’s books at Half Priced Books stores, Half Price Books will match your donation with additional books through its Half Pint Library Books Program.

Nonprofit organizations who need said books can pick them up at 10 a.m. May 10 at the 2506 W. Parmer Lane location. Find out more at
