BOOKWORKS HOLIDAY DRIVES
Bookworks is participating in two donation programs this December. We are taking part in a diaper drive for PB&J Preschool. Anyone donating diapers will receive a 10% discount on the Diaper David board book. We are also conducting a book drive for the North Valley Public Library. Customers interested in purchasing books for the library, which suffered a devastating fire this year, can buy books to be donated at 20% off. Bookworks will collect the books through December on a giving shelf in our store. Ask a bookseller about the initiative, if you are interested in helping our neighborhood library.
