Support Literacy Day benefiting The Downtown School

Graphic for Support Literacy Day benefiting The Downtown School on Monday, May 22. We are donating 10% of the bookstore in-store and online sales to the school to support their literacy programs. On Monday, May 22, shop in-store or online to support The Downtown School and support their initiative for more students to have access to books at home.

We will donate 10% of the day's sales as book credit so they can purchase books for their program and media center.

About The Downtown School

  • Serves Pre-K to 8th-grade students and their families. 
  • The Downtown School's mission is to be a catalyst for students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens through the combined efforts of the school, parents, business partners and community.
  • DTS has a schoolwide reading program called Two Books, One School," in which our K-8 students, families, and teachers participate. Each year, they select 2 books--one for K-4, one for 5-8--that share common themes or elements, and that we think will engage students, and give every student (middle grade) and family (K-4) their own copy of the book to keep. 
  • Funds earned through Support Literacy Days at Bookmarks will go towards purchasing the books for the 2023-2024 selection.
