Book Beat is proud to sponsor our Sixth Annual Bookraiser for the library of Gesu School on Sunday, December 8th, at Book Beat (26010 Greenfield Dr., Oak Park, MI 48237) from 12:00 to 5 PM. 20% of purchases can be donated to the library, along with any books purchased directly for the school 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.”
