What We’ve Been Up To

Charity Sales, Author Signings, and more; We’re springing into March at full force here at the Book Exchange! We had a great month full of community involvement and networking with our friends at Virginia Beach City Public Schools!

This past month, both of our locations combined forces to host their February Charity Sale for Pembroke Elementary School! The Book Exchange had a successful couple of weekends, raising over $1,300 for the school! With your wonderful help, this money will go to teaching resources, books, and more for the kids in the classroom! We couldn’t be more exciting to spread the love of literacy!

In addition to the sale, we were able to attend Pembroke’s Literacy Night to help promote reading in the best way, with games! Our staff created a match and win game that ensured the children would get either a free book or writing utensils to let their creativity flow on paper! It was a lot of fun!

 

The Book Exchange is also excited to announce another Partner in Education with our friends over at Landstown Elementary School in Virginia Beach! Furthermore, we are planning a Charity Sale with them in May to help raise funds for the Summer Reading Program. Our job is making sure every kid gets to take home books to read this Summer! Last year as a result, each child who attended the program received at least 15 books EACH!

 

If you are a teacher, staff, or PTA member with any public schools in Hampton Roads, we would love to connect! For more information on how to become a Partner in Education, please email us: bookexchange757@gmail.com

 

This month, we will be hosting a Charity Sale for 99 for the 1! Not only are they a mobile homeless outreach organization, providing showers to the homeless community in Hampton Roads, but they also provide clothes, meals, and other necessities for them. Please join our Virginia Beach location THIS WEEKEND for the sale! The Norfolk location will host their sale on March 24th and 25th!

In other news, our friends at The Biblio Factory will be hosting a pop-up shop at both locations! You can stop in and shop candles, bath bombs, and more that are created from your favorite characters! March 10th, they will be in our Norfolk location; March 17th, they will be in our Virginia Beach location. Check our event page for more details!

 

In addition to pop-ups, local author Michael Lee Morrison will be in store at our Virginia Beach location on March 10th with his exciting new novel, “The Baetylus Stone”. While he’s here, there will be signed copies available for purchase!
