You can support children's literacy by buying a book today.
The Children's Reading Foundation of the Mid-Columbia is offering a book fair at the Barnes & Noble Booksellers store at Columbia Center mall today.
If you tell store clerks at the registers that you came in to support the foundation, a percentage of what you spend today will be donated to the group, said Executive Director Brian Ace.
Also, grown-ups from local businesses and schools will read to kids from noon to 3 p.m. today in the children's area of the store.
Never miss a local story.
From now until Dec. 31, you can buy books and donate them to the foundation at the Kennewick store, Ace said.
Just select a book, pay for it and hand it to the sales clerk.
