Royer’s Flowers & Gifts and Barnes & Noble join forces for the annual Bouquets for Books children’s book drive occurring Oct. 28 to Nov. 11. Books and funds received benefit Berks County Public Libraries.
Bouquets for Books is an annual children’s book drive by Royer’s Flowers and Gifts benefitting area public libraries. When customers stop by the Reading, Shillington or Wernersville locations to drop off a new children’s book for Berks County Public Libraries, they will receive a free bouquet as thanks. Since the drive first began in 2006, Bouquets for Books has collected nearly 17,000 books from its 15 stores located in Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Franklin, Lancaster, Lebanon and York counties. Berks County libraries have received donated books from the event since the drive’s creation 11 years ago.
This year, Barnes & Noble is working with Royer’s by donating funds from their in-store and online book fair. The bookseller will donate 10 percent of sales to the Berks County Public Libraries when the voucher code 12191144 is used prior to checkout. Stores in Camp Hill, Lancaster and Wyomissing will be having an in-store book fair at their locations on Oct. 28 only. The online book fair will span from Oct. 28 to Nov. 2. Vouchers with more information can be found at your local library.
