Supporting Chatham County Schools

This holiday season, McIntyre’s Books shared holiday cheer with Chatham County students through their Reindeer Reader program. Since Giving Tuesday, more than 1,500 students will receive a beginning reader book to take home over the holidays. Generous sponsors of the program gifted $40 donations to purchase books for a classroom of kindergarten and first-grade students. 

“The gift of literacy is irreplaceable and benefits us all,” says Bookstore Manager Keebe Fitch. “Sarah Carr, our children’s book buyer, and I have been tinkering with the idea of how to get books into the hands of younger students in Chatham County. As Sarah always says, literacy is the best gift one can give. Donors have been so excited about the prospects of sharing books with Chatham’s youngest students that we are considering doing this again before school lets out. Looks like we might have to change the program’s name!”

McIntyre’s Books is incredibly grateful to each volunteer and sponsor for their thoughtfulness and generosity. The bookstore is proud to support the local community as much as possible. Keep an eye out for a summer reading program at the end of the school year — follow McIntyre’s on Facebook!
