Village Books and Paper Dreams is proud to introduce Round It Up, our amazingly simple giving program created to support local nonprofits! Each season, we'll feature a different nonprofit partner that will benefit when you choose to Round It Up, increasing your purchase to the nearest dollar. The non-profit will receive the Round It Up difference. Your change can really make a change!
To participate: As you pay for your purchase, just tell your Village Books or Paper Dreams sales associate that you'd like to Round It Up for local nonprofits, and we'll take it from there!
March, April, and May's featured nonprofit is the Whatcom Literacy Council! At Whatcom Literacy Council, they are dedicated to increasing literacy skills for adults in Whatcom County. Since 1978, the Whatcom Literacy Council has been helping adults in Whatcom County improve their literacy skills and learn English. Through customized, individual tutoring and focused small group classes, our adult learners acquire critical skills needed to become more self-sufficient. Each year, adult learners work with the Whatcom Literacy Council to set achievable goals that allow them to improve their parenting skills, increase their employment opportunities, attain their US citizenship, further their education, and enhance the stability of their daily lives.
Please join us in celebrating Whatcom Literacy Council's accomplishments and Round It Up today!
