Let’s Roll Over Low Literacy!

RCR logo-JPEGFirst Book Portland was delighted to be chosen by the Rose City Rollers as their Community Partner for the first quarter of 2014!

Rose City Rollers presented First Book with a check for a whopping $1,000 during the Season Opener at the Memorial Coliseum on January 18th. We also collected 138 books from fans and league members on behalf of the Children’s Book Bank.

The shop generously donated 10% of all books sold during the event to help share the joy of books with children in low-income families. And as you can see, a good time was had by all!
