Read Across America Day with Pi Beta Phi

Big thanks to the Lake Oswego-Dunthorpe Alumnae Club of Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women for a wonderful Read Across America Day party, as well as a generous donation to First Book!

Our joint event at the West Women’s & Children’s Shelter was a great success and received coverage in the Lake Oswego Review.


Let’s Roll Over Low Literacy!

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!
