Established in 1919, Children's Book Week is the longest-running national literacy initiative in the country. Every year, commemorative events are held nationwide at schools, libraries, bookstores, homes -- wherever young readers and books connect. Village Books donates 10% of all kids' book purchases made during Children's Book Week to the Children's departments of the city and county libraries! And for the second time, National Screen Free Week coincides with CBW to create the perfect pairing. Check out the variety of free events we have planned to keep kids engaged and having fun with books. This year we're hosting a week-long scavenger hunt through the store. Complete the hunt and be entered to win a prize! Contact the store for details or check our website.
