We are having a new book drive for Project READ during the month of August. This is a wonderful organization in our area that teaches local adults and children how to read or how to improve their reading skills. There is a great need for that service, so your book donation will be put to good use. We'll have books you can select at the registers, or you can choose your own. Books appropriate for children, teens, and adults are needed. Thank you for your generosity in helping someone gain reading skills. That's good for everyone!
Here are our visiting authors for August. We'd love to have you come see them. You can find out more about the books in the Calendar of Events Section of this website.
