About this Event
Promising Pages needs YOUR help to end the Charlotte Area Book Desert and share donated books with children with few, if any, books at home! Booktoberfest is a month-long community book drive, celebration and school year kick off and we want you to be a part of it!
Join us for our Booktoberfest Kick-Off Party to celebrate our exciting month ahead. The proceeds from this event will help enable over 8,000 students to build their home libraries with self-selected books during the 2022- 2023 school year.
Light bites will be provided and there is no cost to join us but a suggested donation of $15 or higher would be truly appreciated!
Booktoberfest is a month-long community book drive to collect new & gently-used books for under-resourced children, celebrate volunteerism, and promote a culture of book sharing.
Promising Pages is a nonprofit organization that collects new and donated books and shares them with children living in the Charlotte Area Book Desert: those with few, if any, books at home. In the 2021-2022 school year we shared over 270,000 free books with 60,000+ underserved children. Building students' home libraries and "placing books in the hands of children fundamentally influences their chances for both personal and academic success".
