We are very excited to partner with Special Education English teachers at Beacon High School to bring student libraries to their classrooms for Get Caught Reading month in May. The teachers put together a special wishlist of culturally diverse books that they would like, and your help is much appreciated!
We will match any donation, up to $300.
3 ways you can help:
- Go to Binnacle Books in Beacon to choose books from the teacher wishlist below, and Binnacle will order them for you.
- Donate money to the cause, and we’ll buy the books for you.
- You can also purchase books on your own and drop them off any time at Oak Vino Wine Bar, 389 Main Street.
Bookplates with donor names will be included in the donated books.
We will present the books during Get Caught Reading Month in May, at a special event with a short author presentation by Julie Chibbaro for the students.
