Northshire Book Angel Program

Give the Gift of Reading to Children in Our Community.

The Northshire Bookstore Book Angel program is our 26 year old tradition of ensuring children in our communities receive the gift of a new book during the holidays—children who might not otherwise own a book or have books available to them.

Many of our customers have made this a yearly tradition of their own, coming into the store to choose books or to make a monetary donation to this much loved program.

Here’s how it works

  • We partner with local schools to identify children who would benefit;
  • We decorate our Book Angel trees with ornament tags, each of which contains a child’s first name, age and interests.
  • During the holiday season, donors are invited to pick a child’s orna-ment tag from the tree.
  • Our Children’s Booksellers are happy to help each donor purchase items from their Book Angel child’s wishlist.
  • We guarantee that every child of the hundreds on our list will receive at least one new book, wrapped and delivered to partner schools before the holidays.

Monetary donations are accepted for the Book Angel Program in the bookstore or online all year long.

Thank you to everyone who helps this program bring books to children every year: schools, teachers, booksellers, and our generous customers.
