Dog Ears Bookstore & Literary Art Center and South District Councilman Christopher Scanlon are teaming up to launch a leveled reader books giveaway program called Reading: Better Together at two events this month.
The first giveaway will take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Sunday, Aug. 23, at the South Buffalo Farmers’ Market in Cazenovia Park. A second event will take place from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 29, at the nonprofit bookstore, located at 688 Abbott Road in South Buffalo.
“In addition to the books, information and bookmarks will also be given to readers and parents to help promote comprehension and reading skills and techniques to enhance the reading process,” said Thomas McDonnell, executive director of the bookstore.
Dog Ears has also launched a new YouTube channel with videos to accompany the information and help guide parents on their child’s reading journey. For more information, please visit https://youtu.be/nQYp2umfi5E.
Dog Ears is also encouraging people attending either event to bring a nonperishable food item to support the South Buffalo Community Table.
