About Book Drive Kickoff Party at Quail Ridge

We’re delighted to be the launch site again for WAKE Up and Read’s Book Drive Kickoff for 2017.  Join us for a fun afternoon celebrating literacy with celebrity readers, creative activities for children, face painting, and an appearance by Wake Up’s mascot, Ruben the Rooster.  Other special guests will be announced soon.

WAKE Up and Read Book Drive KickoffBack by popular demand, the 4th annual WAKE Up and Read book drive will run from January 21 – March 4. The goal this year is to collect 110,000 new or gently-used books for children ages birth -12 years old.  Any books purchased from us for donation to WAKE Up and Read receives a 20% discount.  Of course, any gently-used children’s books are accepted.  Look over your bookshelves for children’s books you’ve finished with and bring them in.

We will have a collection bin prominently displayed in our store through Jan. 29. 

See WUAR website for drop-off points during the rest of the drive.

Please, no textbooks, encyclopedias, teen or adult books.  The group is collecting books for elementary schools and child care centers. Their goal is to get 10 books per child to 10 schools and centers.
