Friends' Books for Soldiers Program

©2012 Friends of St. Charles Public Library

To support our troops serving overseas, a "Books for Soldiers" program was begun
in 2005.
The committee gathers and boxes books that are then sent to soldiers who have
requested them. We have received many notes from the soldiers expressing their appreciation for our efforts. In 2007, we received a Certificate of Appreciation from
the 210th Brigade Support Battalion, Camp Striker, Iraq. In 2009, we received a Coin
of Excellence from the Chaplains in Bagram in appreciation of our Books for Soldiers program.

Since 2005, the Friends have sent over 3,000 books to our soldiers. We are happy
to have found this small way to support our troops serving so far from home.

If you know of a soldier who would like to receive books, you can contact us with
his/her information by clicking on the link. For military security purposes we must
have a specific name and address to send books.

Please EMAIL HERE with soldier information.
