CRC Monthly Book Donation Drives

AKA "Books and Brews"

When you walk into Wicker's Crab Pot in the Indian River area of Chesapeake, you will find a treasure chest (for our "Unlocking the Treasures of Literacy" theme) where ANYONE is welcome to leave donated books any time Wicker's is open for business. You may donate new books or used books in good condition for donations. 

(If you see a book you can't live without in the chest, take it home! Our ultimate goal is to promote literacy across the city so as long as the books go into a reader's hands we are happy!)

We will be holding monthly "Books and Brews" Donation Nights on the third Monday of every month. IF the third Monday of the month falls on a day that Chesapeake Public Schools is closed for employees (holidays, breaks, etc), then we will move the "Books and Brews" Donation Night to the fourth Monday of those months. This will happen in January, February, and April of 2019. 

We have over 500 members across the city and we want the opportunity to meet members, share ideas, and network. Maybe even host some book clubs that evening?? The possibilities are endless!!! Don't forget to bring a book for donation!

While the 10% discount will be available EVERY Monday during regular business hours for teachers and CRC members who provide ID/Membership Cards, we have made the "Books and Brews" night a time for members to really connect with one another. While executive board members may stay much of the evening during donation nights, our goal is to always have at least one or more board members present between 4:30-5:30 so members know that their executive board is HERE, AVAILABLE, and that we VALUE YOUR OPINIONS!
