COLERAIN, OH (FOX19) - Whitaker Elementary is asking for help after this weekend's flooding ruined dozens of books in the school media center.

The Half Price Books store in Colerain is hosting a book drive Friday to help the school replace some of those books.

They'll be collecting new and gently used children's books from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Half Price Books plans to match all donations.

The store is located at 9720 Colerain Avenue.
