It's just our way of encouraging youth to be reading and grow their home library without costing a thing! Studies show that children who spend more time reading have higher literacy rates, better test scores and do well in school, leading to better paying jobs and brighter futures. This is our way of giving back to the community, to reduce barriers to learning and literacy and encouraging family reading. Children love being able to pick out their own books in topics they are interested in.
Bring the whole family & friends down to our Bookstore for the fun anytime Monday - Sunday and pick out any 5 Free Books per month per youth from our store! No catch. No strings. No kidding!
