A Warm Welcome to the Library
Operation Warm is teaming up with libraries, community partners, foundations and corporations across the country to give brand new coats and literacy opportunities to children who participate. This engaging, innovative program will provide an opportunity to introduce kids and families living in need to all that your library branch offers beyond books.
“This year’s Operation Warm events truly provided 'A Warm Welcome to the Library.' The flow of the event allowed families to take advantage of library resources. We distributed so many flyers for upcoming events that we ran out at nearly every event!”
“Our circulation desk had a line at the end of January. In the summer, we always have a line. But in January, the staff was like, 'This is awesome.'…You should've seen their faces. Just the warmth and confidence the children showed through getting the gift of a winter coat was just really cool.”
