Double your donation!

An anonymous donor has offered to double our donation to the Oregon Food Bank for the books that teens read this summer. Each book read equals a 25 cent donation originally, now it is worth 50 cents!  Teens and tweens have read over 1000 books this summer so far in our effort to contribute to the Oregon Food Bank. For all the details on summer reading and how to sign up, visit the teen section of our website.
