Book Collection

The Dana Wildcats 4-H Club is collecting gently used children’s books for the Little Free Library that they will place at the Dana Community Park. The purpose of the library is “take a book, leave a book,”  but the 4-H club plans to have extra books to keep the library stocked. They will also label the books and make bookmarks. Please deliver books to Dana Elementary School, 690 Ridge Rd, Hendersonville, NC, and note that they are for the Dana Wildcats 4-H Club.

Books for Good

Do you have gently used books, cds, and  dvds that you no longer want? Bring them to the Cooperative Extension office. “Books for Good” will sell your books. The profit will go to the 4-H club that you specify, or to Henderson County 4-H. Please bring the books in a cardboard milk carton. Books for Good is also a great place to shop! Read more at
