While you are out shopping at Northshire Bookstore for all of your well-read friends be sure to participate in their Book Angel Program. Names of children who may not otherwise have access to books are collected from local schools and books are chosen by booksellers and customers for each child. The books are then handed out by the schools before holiday break. A must do this season.
