Gift-Giving Tree

We're doing our gift-giving tree a little differently this year. Below are recommended titles and direct requests we've received from low-income kids in our community. Please feel free to add what you'd like, based on these titles and/or interests. 

We're so grateful for our community and the way that our community has supported us and our bookstore, we're happy to extend that support to young readers. 

Cheers! and Thank you!
