The Big Red Bookshelf kicked off it's second year of providing free books to young children in Richland County on Monday afternoon, as children and their families were invited to the Mansfield YMCA and treated to a day of fun and literacy.

Children were read to by the Mansfield Senior High School boys basketball team and Mansfield Maverick cheerleaders and given a free copy of "Bear Snores On". Participants also received a free basketball from Ohio State Mansfield and were treated to free pizza and snacks courtesy of Two Cousins Pizza, Jones Chips and Buckeye Bakery.

The Big Red Bookshelf collects new and gently used books appropriate for children ages infant through third grade at book drives throughout the year. The books are given away via several Big Red Bookshelves in Richland County including the Mansfield Area YMCA, Richland County Job and Family Services, Mansfield/Ontario/Richland County Health Department, Women, Infants and Children program and the Bellville Neighborhood Outreach Center.

If you, your company, church or organization would like to host a book drive or donate money for new books, please call the United Way at 419- 525-2816.
