Using a formula based on sales at the store, funds are collected over an entire calendar year and ultimately divided among participating schools the following year. We started with four districts in 2015, and have since expanded other North Country schools.The money raised goes directly to the purchase of library books to be distributed to local elementary facilities.
Each library book donated through the program is stamped on the inside front cover with our Bucks for Books logo. These stamps are modest in size, but serve as permanent reminders that the books were made possible through our initiative.
Our belief is that the Bucks for Books program promotes children’s literacy by helping to replenish library bookshelves to the benefit of young students throughout our region.
Working with our loyal customers, we intend to make a difference for generations to come.
