Saturday, December 7th is the fourth annual Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day and Jenny Milchman, the creator of the event, has been busy preparing. "Bookstores hold a place in the hearts and times of our community,” Milchman says. “They are places to discover an author, a story, a life.

The purpose of the event is to help expose future generations to “the unique pleasures” that bookstores off and to help bookstores flourish and thrive.
