Borders Teams up With Literacy Volunteers of Bangor 

Customers at Borders can give a book and help a child or adult.Starting today Borders has teamed up with the Literacy Volunteers of Bangor.The price of books range from 3 dollars to 15 dollars.And can improve the literacy of children and adults.All the book donations from Borders’ patrons will go directly into homes in the area where they are needed most.Something Cafe Supervisor Ann Redman says they are happy to help with.” We feel great. I mean like I said anything we can do. We know how hard it is right now. Everybody is having such a hard time with the economy and having a hard time time making ends meat. So the fact that we can take $2.99 book and say here you go give it to an adult who needs to learn how to read or a kid from that family who is also trying to learn how to read makes all the difference in the world.”For more information on how you can support a more literate community call the Literacy Volunteers of Maine at 947-8451.
