ReadDavidson Invites Community to Donate Books to Area Schools
The ReadDavidson committee invites avid readers in the Davidson community and the surrounding area to donate books to local schools in an effort to provide as many copies of the 2022 selections to children and students as possible.
The ReadDavidson committee is currently in its event planning stage, with a specific eye towards engaging local schools, from Davidson K8 through Hough High School, as well as area private and charter schools.
Those interested can get involved by donating the following books:
Young Adult/Adult (Fiction): What Makes Us by Rafi Mittlefehldt
Middle Grades (Non-Fiction/Graphic Novel): When Stars Are Scattered by Victoria Jamieson and Omar Mohamed
Children’s Picture Book: Story Boat by Kyo Maclear, illustrated by Rashin Kheiriyeh
To donate books to schools, either purchase one or more of the titles above at Main Street Books or enter code RD22DONATION when you checkout online. Davidson Parks & Recreation Department will be charged with distributing any and all donated books.
ReadDavidson, an annual town-wide reading initiative that started in 2007, is a partnership between the Town of Davidson, the Davidson Public Library, Main Street Books, and local avid readers. The ReadDavidson committee encourages people to read a selected book and attend fun book-related events that make the books come to life.
