WVU Children’s Hospital to benefit from Books-A-Million book drive

Event to be held Friday and Saturday

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Book enthusiasts will have the opportunity to help the patients at West Virginia University Children’s Hospital while they shop at the Books-A-Million store at the Glenmark Centre in Morgantown.

Friday and Saturday (May 8 and 9), Books-A-Million will hold a book drive for WVU Children’s Hospital. Customers can buy children’s books at a 20-percent discount. The books will be delivered to the hospital Monday (May 11).

The donated books are for a book cart so patients will be able to choose a book to take home with them.

Each year, WVU Children’s Hospital provides care to more than 7,000 newborns, children and women, who come from every county in West Virginia and also from Pennsylvania, Maryland and Ohio. On average, 1,600 babies are born annually at WVU Children’s Hospital. Almost three-quarters of the deliveries are high-risk. WVU Children’s Hospital physicians provide care for children at the hospital in Morgantown and at clinics throughout the state.
