Did you know Dewey’s 24 Hour Readathon is celebrating its TEN YEAR anniversary in October 2017?
In light of Dewey’s great contribution to our community, we decided to shift our focus to giving this season. Visit our RoomtoRead campaign page if you have the resources to give. We are working toward a $1,000 goal, so if you can spare a dollar or two, we’d appreciate it!
