On October 23, we celebrated Aidan’s annual Book Fair at Politics and Prose—a time-honored Aidan tradition that our community looks forward to every year!
Each Autumn, Aidan partners with a local, independent bookstore, Politics and Prose, to throw a Book Fair. Every time a participant purchases a book, part of the proceeds go towards Aidan. These funds help Aidan thrive, grow, and continue to serve our community.
Additionally, participants can also donate books they purchase, and these books can be donated either directly to Aidan’s library or to our partner this year: The Homeless Children's Playtime Project.
To date, we have received approximately 63 books for Aidan's library and 13 books for The Homeless Children's Playtime Project, and grand total sales from all three locations add up to $3,680.97 with a 20% total take away of $736.19 for Aidan and the Homeless Children's Playtime Project! If you haven’t already, you can drop off all books in the Aidan lobby—there are marked bins awaiting your donations.
Here are some of the books we’ve received so far for Aidan’s library and The Homeless Children's Playtime Project:
Thank you to everyone who participated in our Book Fair, and to Politics and Prose for hosting this event! Book Fair couldn't happen without your generous support and engagement.
