Round It Up! at Village Books and Paper Dreams

Village Books and Paper Dreams is proud to introduce Round It Up, our 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 The RE Store!
