The Kiwanis Club of Fairfield will hold a town-wide book drive from April 4 through 15.

The drive will involve collecting new and gently used books to be donated to Read to Grow Inc. for distribution to Connecticut communities with a need to encourage literacy and promote early language development.

The books should be appropriate for children of all ages up to the eighth grade reading level.

Collection bins will be placed in both branches of the Fairfield Public Library and all the town's public schools as well as several of the town's private nursery schools.

For information or to locate a collection bin, contact Tove Vanderblue at 203-255-4716.
