Royer's Flowers & Gifts' annual book drive collected 1,653 new children's books for public libraries in six counties, including Lancaster.
During its recent Bouquets For Books campaign, the Lebanon-based business offered free flowers for each book customers donated at its 17 stores in the region.
Royer's recently presented the books to county library systems and the independent Hershey Public Library. The Library System of Lancaster County received the most: 616 books.
Books also were collected locally at Royer's Lancaster West, Ephrata, Leola and Columbia stores.
