REACH: Big Free Bookstore

The Big Free Bookstore has a new location at Janaf Shopping Yard. Visitors can come twice a week and get two free new books and two free used books at each visit. 

It's not a scam, REACH, which stands for Reading Enriches All Children, knows the impact that covid had on our community. They set up the bookstore so that people had books and literature, no matter what. The books range from baby books to adult contemporary. I loved that there was representation of different cultures and religions. 

The bookstore is funded by donations, the community, corporate partnerships, and grants. They also have programs for stocking daycares and classroom libraries for teachers. Take your kiddos by and check it out!
