Junior League of Winston-Salem BookWORM
The Junior League of Winston-Salem (JLWS) aims to help families gain greater access to books through BookWORM, a drive to collect new and gently used children's books from its members and the greater community. If you would like to support their efforts, you may contribute directly to their community partners via their Bookmarks Wish Lists.
When ordering from a wish list, please 1) choose in-store pickup and 2) list the name of the community partner you are shopping for in your order comments. You do not need to pickup or deliver your purchases - Bookmarks will coordinate book delivery/pickup directly with the community partner.

Did you know? When you choose to shop local, you...
1) Keep dollars in our community
For every $100 you spend at a local business, $68 will stay in our community. When you spend the same $100 at a national chain, only $43 stays in our community.
2) Embrace what keeps Winston-Salem unique
We're proud of our community in Winston-Salem. Help us contribute to make it better and more interesting by creating fun and unique places of business.
3) Create local jobs
The more local businesses grow, the more jobs they can provide for those here in our community.
4) Help the environment
Buying from local businesses conserves energy and resources in the form of less fule for transportation and less packaging.
5) Nurture community
You know us, and we know you. Studies have shown that local businesses are more likely to invest in community causes and charities than national chains. Why? We care about where we live. It's our community, too!
6) Conserve tax dollars
Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money available to beautify our community. Also, spending money locally instead of online ensures that your sales taxes are reinvested in our community.
7) Create more choices
We pick the items we sell based on what we know you like and want. Local businesses carry a wider array of unique products because we buy for an individualized community. We strike to bring authors to town and into our local schools who address our community's concerns.
8) Take advantage of our expertise
We have a vested interest in knowing how to serve you. We're passionate about what we do. Why not take advantage of that?
9) Invest in entrepreneurship
Creativity and entrepreneurship are what the American economy, and Winston-Salem, is founded upon. Nurturing local businesses ensures a stronger economy.
10) Make us a destination
The more interesting and unique we are as a community, the more we will attract new neighbors, visitors and guests.
