We are partnering with Book Ahead in their efforts to provide a book-a-month to children (birth to age 5) from low-income families in our area. Anyone interested in supporting this worthy project can drop off new or gently used board books or picture books at Martha Merrell's Books.
We are also offering a 15% discount on any book bought at our store for this program.
Literacy is so important to an individual's success in life. Children need to be read to each day and hopefully have a library of their own from the day they are born.
