Round It Up! at Village Books & Paper Dreams

Village Books and Paper Dreams is proud to introduce Round It Up, our new, amazingly simple giving program created to support local nonprofits! Each season, we'll feature a different nonprofit partner that will benefit when you choose to Round It Up, increasing your purchase to the nearest dollar. The non-profit will receive the Round It Up difference. As you pay for your purchase, just tell your Village Books or Paper Dreams sales associate that you'd like to Round It Up for local nonprofits, and we'll take it from there. Our current featured nonprofit is Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center!

In the 1940s and 50s, when the newly minted Jet Propulsion Laboratory needed quick-thinking mathematicians to calculate velocities and plot trajectories, they didn't turn to male graduates. Rather, they recruited an elite group of young women who, with only pencil, paper, and mathematical prowess, transformed rocket design, helped bring about the first American satellites, and made the exploration of the solar system possible.

Chuck's Big Ride Redux: Back in the Saddle – A 2000 Mile Fundraiser

In the summer of 2015 Chuck set out to ride his bicycle from Bellingham to his hometown of Galva, Illinois — a distance of about 2400 miles. Things went well until the 37th riding day. Two years have passed and Chuck’s ready to climb back on the bike —guess you could call him a slow learner.  He’ll begin the ride on September 1st where he went down and, after saying hello to those dogs, he’ll pedal on to Bar Harbor, Maine—a distance of about 2000 miles.  Once again, Chuck is pledging $1 per mile to each of three organizations. Read on for more info on Chuck's ride and for pledging links and information!
