On Saturday, March 28th, Island Books is hosting a special fundraiser for First Place Scholars Charter School in Seattle. 20% of all purchases made on the 28th will be donated to this school which supports homeless families in Seattle. First Place is for elementary school students, K-5, and is committed to help these incredible children rise above their personal circumstances to excel academically while teaching the importance of continuous learning throughout life. If you need to pick up your book club book, or a card and gift, please consider doing that shopping tomorrow at Island Books. And if you would like to purchase a children’s book to donate to First Place, Island Books staff will gladly be of assistance and take your donated book to the school. While noodling over a good book to donate, I was taken back to when my kids were little. One of our favorite things to do was read together. Two of my kids’ favorite story books were If You Give A Moose a Muffin and If You Give A Mouse a Cookie written by Laura Numeroff and illustrated by Felicia Bond. I bet Island Books carries both of those books. Hhhmm… I think I have some shopping to do!
While you are out and about over the weekend, will visiting open houses be on your agenda? Windermere Mercer Island brokers will be hosting open houses both Saturday and Sunday. All the listings are newer to the market, some just listed this week! The home in Kenmore was designed by Franky Tichy. If you’d like to learn more about Tichy and his architectural style, check out this Curbed Seattle article here. Details for each open house are below, by city.
