Would You, Could You Buy a Book?
Clark College Bookstore helps promote child literacy
by Hannah Erickson
As Theodor Geisel (aka Dr. Seuss) once wrote, “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” Heeding those words, Clark College has chosen to make the beneficiary of its seventh annual book drive Vancouver’s King Elementary School.
The Clark College Bookstore is hoping that Book Drive supporters will purchase 100 copies of the Dr. Seuss classic The Cat in the Hat. The books will be given to kindergarteners at King Elementary on Read Across America Day, a celebration to commemorate the birthday of Dr. Seuss. Books will be read aloud to students by volunteers from Clark College Bookstore.
Copies of the selected Dr. Seuss books will be available for purchase and donation February 16-27 for $6.85 each, plus tax. Each book will include a nameplate with the donor’s name. Donors will be able to purchase books at the Bookstore or online, making it quick and convenient to participate in the book drive.
