'Open Books' For Literacy

February 5, 2012 5:25:50 AM PST
Children's literacy is a topic of much discussion. One Chicago store is doing its part to help, but of course, it is not just for kids.

The nonprofit store Open Books www.open-books.org in the River North neighborhood, a used books store, has 50,000 donated books; 10,000 of them are children's books. It also has an interactive kids section and a three-classroom literacy center above the store. Lizzy Boden, the "Open Books" store coordinator, brought a few examples of children's books from the store into our ABC7 studio.

Open Books gladly accepts donated books!
