World Book Night USA, a nonprofit organization dedicated to spreading the love of reading, held its annual book-giving event on April 23.
Little Joe’s, the Katonah bookshop, and a WBN volunteer, Cate Berger, brought the Center stacks of beautiful new books for teens and adults. We will offer these to families who visit the Center, to further promote literacy and reading.
Gretchen Menzies, who owns Little Joe’s with her husband Peter, said seeing the look on a person’s face when offered a book to take home is something to cherish, no matter the age or background of that person.
"We know that there is nothing better than a new book to take you to a new world, introduce you to new ideas, and enjoy time in a different way."
