Hopa Mountain and Country Bookshelf Host Children’s Book Drive
Hopa Mountain and Country Bookshelf are hosting their annual Children’s Book Drive through January 5, 2019. Both Hopa Mountain and Country Bookshelf are collecting new and gently used children’s books to be given to children who lack quality books at home.
“Having age-appropriate children’s books at home creates a strong early learning environment that supports children’s development,” said Bonnie Sachatello-Sawyer, Hopa Mountain’s executive director. “When families read together, children’s vocabulary, communication skills, and self-confidence get a boost too.”
In order to give children across Montana access to high-quality reading materials this holiday season, you can purchase or drop off books at Country Bookshelf on Main Street in downtown Bozeman, at Hopa Mountain’s office located at 234 E. Babcock St, or call 406-586-2455 to arrange for the books to be picked up by Hopa Mountain staff. To learn more about Hopa Mountain’s initiatives, please visit www.hopamountain.org.
Hopa Mountain invests in citizen leaders who are working to improve education, ecological health, and economic development in their home towns.
