Thanks to the many of you who made Page Ahead part of your year-end and holiday giving, more than 2,100 eager young readers will be able to choose 12 books each this spring during Book Up Summer!

Many donors gave in honor or memory of family members, teachers, and friends; we are honored that you included us in your giving traditions!

We’re also grateful to our partner bookstores who held book drives over the holidays, including Barnes & Noble stores in Northgate, Woodinville, Lakewood Mall, Federal Way, Spokane Valley, and Northtown Mall; Secret Garden Bookshop, and Edmonds Bookshop. Thank you, booksellers and generous customers, for getting in the holiday spirit!
