The library is collecting new underwear for area school children.

During the month of December, you're encouraged to 'drop your drawers' at any branch locations.

The donations will go to Fayette County Public Schools' Family Resource Centers.

"Where the school systems can deal with accidents that kindergartners might have, and also deal with children who really can't afford underwear that's the right size, or can't afford it," said Doug Tattershall. "Captain Underpants has been a fun, irreverent book that a lot of children have liked, a lot have connected with it, and that sort of was the inspiration for the whole drive."
