Book Beat is proud to sponsor our Fourth Annual Bookraiser for the library of Gesu School on Sunday, December 3rd, at Book Beat (26010 Greenfield Dr., Oak Park, MI 48237) from 12:00-5:00 PM. 20% of purchases can be donated to the library, along with any books purchased directly for the school library. In addition, Book Beat will be accepting gently used books to donate to the Gesu Library. Anita Sevier, Community Outreach Coordinator for the school, says: “Gesu students are like all children who want to read the newest, trendy books. We try to purchase books that are currently popular–those that the students are excited to read currently. This is why we ask that the books that are donated not be older than 10 years old.” Please call Book Beat at (248) 968-1190 if you have any questions. To download a poster, click here.
