Holiday Book Drive for Page Ahead!
Page Ahead is one of our favorite local non-profit organizations!
We are hosting a Holiday Book Drive Monday December 18 – Friday December 22, 2023.
For books purchased to donate, there will be a special discount offered on Thursday, December 21st during Art Walk Edmonds 5-8pm, stay tuned for more information.
From Page Ahead: Here are the book types we are most in need of:
Soft cover books for ages 3 -5
Soft cover books for ages 6 - 9
Non-fiction books for ages 3 - 5
Non-fiction books for ages 6 – 9
Books in other languages (especially Spanish) ages 0 – 9
Our readers love books with diverse characters!
The only thing we cannot accept is books with religious or holiday themes. We serve schools that have more than 22 languages spoken, so we like to be inclusive by offering books any of the kiddos would want to choose from.
Research shows that easy access to books and reading in childhood is one of the greatest predictors of future success—even controlling for parental education level and income. Having books in the home—and reading them early and often with children—is a crucial part of our society’s fight for equity in education and opportunities.
We have one more ask for the year... help us fill up a box with books so that many more kids will get a book of their very own!
