Northbrook briefs: Children's book drive; Northfield Township recycling

Carroll sponsors book drive

State Rep. Jonathan Carroll of Northbrook has paired with Bernie's Book Bank to conduct a children's book drive at his service office this month.

Carroll is seeking donations of children's books for reading levels from beginner up through sixth-grade. Reference, textbooks or activity books are not being sought.

Bernie's Book Bank will then provide the books to families in need.

Through May people may drop off children's books at Carroll's district office, 3153 Dundee Road, Northbrook.
