Books & Mortar/Congress Book Drive

One of my favourite bookstores, Books & Mortar, is supporting their local Grand Rapids Public School with this nifty promotion.

The sign reads "Please support the Congress Elementary Book Drive. Receive 10% off your entire purchase when you buy one or more books to donate to the classroom libraries at Congress Elementary--right in our backyard!

"Every book has been hand-picked and requested by the teaching staff and will be infinitely treasured as resources that help inspire and empower our next generation of leaders! THANK YOU!"

One of my favourite parts of this book drive is that it involves the teachers at Congress Elementary. Not only have the teachers chosen the books that fit their classroom library needs, but they've been hosting story times at the bookstore. Having been a teacher at GRPS myself, I know that when you are asked what you need to make your classroom better, it makes all the difference. Thank you, Books & Mortar, for being the community bookstore that inspires teachers and students.
