Event Spotlight: Rock for Reading & Open Books Sort-A-Thon

Rock for Reading and Open Books are holding their second Sort-A-Thon on Saturday. They have 15,000 children's books to go through and they need your help to get them sorted for distribution to local schools and reading programs. The Sort-A-Thon will start at 10:30am and go until 1:30pm. If you can't stay and sort, but still want to help, drop off your own books to donate, or bring food and drink to keep all the hard workers going. The event takes place at the Open Books Warehouse at 600 N. Albany Ave. Email Becca Keaty at bkeaty[at]open-books[dot]org for more information or to sign up.
