Raise a Reader Book Sale


Please see an email I received from Donna Cowie, a volunteer for seniors in Windsor and one of the organizers of this book event. I met Donna recently at a United Way event and promised her I would promote the book sale so families in the west-end are aware. Please check it out and grab some books for you and your kids!

"The Raise a Reader Book Used Book Sale takes place this weekend at Windsor Crossings.  There will be lots of signs at Crossings to direct you to the store.  We have paperbacks for one dollar and hard cover books for three dollars.  All children’s books are twenty-five cents.  The sale starts on Saturday, April 12 at 9 a.m. until  6 p.m.  and the sale continues on Sunday from noon to five p.m.  We will also have a final sale on Saturday April 19 from 9 - 6.  

The Windsor Star sponsors this sale and all funds raised go to literacy initiatives, including Book of My Own.  Volunteers of Book of My Own are organizing the sale and receive a portion of the funds raised.  Book of My Own Literacy Campaign uses the money raised to provide  new books to disadvantaged children who might not have a book of their own.

Hope to see you there!"
