A Bookseller's Blotter


la la laNovember seems an appropriate time to focus on giving back to our community.

The Book Angel Program is one of the most heartwarming projects we tackle and I am moved by the stories people share when they donate books. Children might pick a favorite story for a reader their own age. Adults often choose a book that meant a lot to them, or a new title that addresses a cultural issue. They reflect on how grateful they are that someone gave them a special book or that they were read to when young. Books play a unique role in our world.

Pages in the Pub, the Library’s popular fundraiser created by Lisa Christie and Lisa Cadow of The Book Jam, has been reimagined for younger readers as Book Buzz. This season there will be two school events in the Upper Valley, at Crossroads Academy and Marion Cross. The concept is fairly simple, yet powerful: the gatherings strengthen ties within our community while raising funds to support those who may be struggling. And the events are great for discovering the perfect gift for all the readers on your list!

We are deeply grateful for the support we receive from you throughout the year and are happy to have these opportunities to reciprocate by donating a percentage of sales. ~ Liza

P.S. Save the date: Join us Thursday, December 7th, for our annual Holiday Festivities! ~ Liza
