The Medford Library is collecting donations of new and lightly used books for children and teens on behalf of Toys for Tots now through Friday, Dec. 22.

Toys for Tots delivers, through a new toy at Christmas, a message of hope to less fortunate youngsters that will assist them in becoming responsible, productive, patriotic citizens. All proceeds and donations will remain in Jackson County to provide toys and books to the children in need within our community.

Donations may be dropped off at the Medford Library Circulation Department, 205 S. Central Ave., Medford.

For more information call 541-774-8679 or see jcls.org.
