12/11/22 - 12/17/22: Book Drive to benefit PageAhead!

 

Edmonds Bookshop will be accepting new book donations for the Page Ahead Children’s Literacy Program the week of December 11th through 17thWe are offering 10% off any books purchased for donation during the week.  Please consider a donation as you do your holiday shopping this season!

 

Page Ahead especially needs:

  • Books for Kids ages 0 to 9
  • Non-fiction
  • Soft cover picture books
  • Books in Spanish
  • Graphic Novels

Page Ahead serves students across the state of Washington, including two elementary schools in the Edmonds School District, with book distribution and story-time projects. Their stated goal is to close the literacy gap “by giving young students furthest from educational opportunity access to books and reading resources.” They also give thousands of books through a Book Oasis project:  18 custom made free little libraries that are stocked monthly by volunteers, located in book deserts across Seattle. All books donated through Edmonds Bookshop will be redistributed to the students in areas that need them most.

Include Everyone
Please make sure books are non-religious, non-holiday-themed, and appropriate. No tacit or overt endorsements of hatred, oppression, exclusion, or injustice.

In addition, those shopping on December 15th during Art Walk Edmonds from 5-8 pm can receive 20% off one item in the store - not only donated books (some exclusions apply)!

See below for a portion of Page Ahead's Wish List...to give you an idea of what they are looking for. Please feel free to order books online that are not on the list. Mention in your order comments that they are for the Page Ahead donation and we will make sure to get you the 10% discount -- thank you so much!

And all kinds of information about Page Ahead on their website is here.
