It’s no secret that Bookmans is all about promoting literacy. We do sell books after all. 😉 That’s why all month long Bookmans Tucson stores will be collecting books for local non profit Literacy Connects. Since forming in 2011, Literacy Connects has been at the forefront in promoting literacy through out Tucson and Southern Arizona. With programs such as Reading Seed and Reach Out And Read, Literacy Connects not only helps get your child get ready to read but also helps adults with literacy and english language skills.
Bookmans is proud to partner with this amazing organization. Please join us in promoting literacy in Southern Arizona by donating children’s books to Literacy Connects. All month long we will be collecting books at our Tucson stores. Simply locate the Literacy Connects donation box at your local Bookmans Tucson store and drop off your donation.
Trade or cash donations can be dropped off at Bookmans registers. We will make sure your donations make to Literacy Connects.
Literacy Connect mission:
“Connecting people of all ages to a world of opportunities through literacy and creative expression.
From birth throughout adulthood, Literacy Connects’ programs offer opportunities for learners of all ages to realize their potential — at school and in the workplace, as parents, as consumers and as participants in the life of our community. Last year, our staff and more than 1,500 dedicated volunteers helped more than 50,000 individuals in Southern Arizona. The programs of Literacy Connects coach children in reading so they catch up with their peers and help adults with reading, writing, math and English. The programs teach parents the importance of reading to their children, help young people experience the power of words and ideas through the arts, and put books in the hands of people who need them.”
