We are three days away from our biggest event of the year: the Dream Big Book Drive on MLK Day!
Planning to join us? Here’s what you can expect:
- MASCOT meet-and-greets with Wool E. Bull, Clifford the Big Red Dog, Read-A-Roo, Chase from Paw Patrol, and Ranger Baldy!
- LIVE MUSIC from Batala Durham, North Carolina Central University Vocal Jazz Ensemble, and Tiny House!
- A JUMP ROPE PERFORMANCE by the Bouncing Bulldogs!
- FOOD VENDORS Mr A’s Beignets, Dang Good Dogs, and Mad Popper!
- CRAFTS with The Scrap Exchange and a bookmark-making table!
- FACE PAINTING with Lakewood Elementary PTA!
- RED CARPET PHOTO BOOTH with free downloadable photos!
- LAWN GAMES and more!
And it’s not too late to round up your books to donate! Help us make sure we can keep our shelves stocked all year long by bringing your new and gently used books for children from birth through high school. We’ll make sure they find their way into the hands and homes of children who will love them just as much as you have!
Didn’t manage to snag a spot on our volunteer sign up? We’ll have a limited number of spots available for walk-up volunteers on Monday. Check in at the registration table to see if spots remain when you arrive!
DON’T MISS IT! Durham Central Park, Monday, January 15, 1:00-4:00 p.m. (with the Bouncing Bulldogs kicking it off at 12:45)!
