Thanks for the tip to circumvent Facebook... Works!! I have a whole new profile. I see posts from people I didn't see anymore. Facebook's new algorithm picks the same people - around 25-who will see your posts. Hold your finger anywhere in this post and click " copy ". Go to your page where it says " what's on your mind". Tap your finger anywhere in the empty field. Click paste. This is going to circumvent the system.
Hello new and old friends!
Drop a single hello, thanks!

Our 20% discount for Tuesday and Wednesday is on hardcover books for children. With the temperature on the rise, kids can cool off with any of our fiction or non-fiction hardcovers that pique their interests. With school no longer in session, it's important to avoid this year's extended "summer slide" when students are not reading on a regular basis.
To that end, we continue to offer FREE learning materials for families to have for use at home.
