C-SPAN2’s Book TV came to Books & Co. and filmed a piece on Erma Bombeck and the impact she has had on the literary world. They plan to run it on noon Saturday, December 21 as part of their "Dayton Weekend." Other segments throughout the weekend will feature The Wright Brothers and the special collections at Wright State University on C-SPAN3 (American History). The programs are part of C-SPAN’s Cities Tour, which has visited 21 cities this year. Dayton is the only Ohio city to be profiled this year.Time Warner Cable says the programs are available on channels 360 and 361 in most of the Dayton area. We hope you get a chance to see it.
Until December 21, we’ll be accepting your donations for Michael’s House, a local children’s advocacy center which provides a warm and welcoming environment for children who have been abused in some way. They are in need of new children’s books, games, puzzles, stuffed animals, journals, and toys. Our store is filled with those sorts of things, so there are lots to choose from. Just bring your selections to the register area and we’ll see that they get taken to Michael’s House to be distributed to the children they serve.
Thank you for sharing the holiday spirit with others in our community. And thank you for being our customers. We appreciate you!
