Baltimore County Public Library begins sixth-annual toy drive

All branches of the Baltimore County Public Library will collect new, unwrapped toys from Nov. 4 through Dec. 6, to donate to community-based nonprofits around Baltimore County.

Each of the library’s 19 branches has selected a local organization to donate the toys to, said library spokeswoman Erica Palmisano. The donations will be sent to the nonprofits on Dec. 9, so they can be distributed to families in time for the upcoming holidays.

Donation bins will be conspicuously displayed at library locations around the county. Palmisano said she did not know offhand how many toys have been collected in the past, but that “the public is very generous.”

In a statement, library director Paula Miller said, “It’s exciting to assist in providing children with something special and new for the holidays.”
