The Saturday Club and beloved local book store, Main Point Books, are kicking off a book drive in support of the West Philadelphia Alliance for Children (WePAC). WePAC’s mission is to promote childhood literacy by engaging volunteers in Philadelphia public schools through re-opening and staffing libraries and academic mentoring. The book drive will supply much needed books to aid in these efforts.
Books should be in new or like-new condition and geared towards children in grades 1-8 and can be dropped off in the designated bin at Main Point Books, located at 116 N. Wayne Ave., Wayne, PA. Main Point Books is offering a 20% discount on all books purchased to support this drive from now until February 18th. Click here for a suggested book list. Many of these books, in addition to several other suggested for this book drive, can be found at Main Point Books in their children’s section.
On February 18th The Saturday Club will be sorting and coding all of the donated books to help WePAC prepare for the opening of a new library in one of our Philadelphia area schools.
Thank you to the community and Saturday Club members for supporting this important community service project.
