The county Juvenile Hall and the Orin Allen Youth Rehabilitation Center in Byron are seeking holiday donations of books for incarcerated youth.

The libraries aim to bring some literary cheer every season by presenting each resident the gift of a book on Christmas Day, but funding is tenuous. Those wishing to participate can call Nadia at 925-957-2704.

The Juvenile Hall Auxiliary also gives each resident a backpack of goodies, and recruits volunteers to deliver the gifts on Christmas Day. For more information, contact Janet Young at 925-957-2718.
