Eastern Iowa store working to get more kids reading

MARION (KWWL) -

An Eastern Iowa book store is working to get more kids reading.

Half Price Books in Marion is holding a book drive through the end of the month. They're looking specifically for children's books.

The store will match donations given and distribute the books to different Eastern Iowa not-for-profits.

"It's also a great way to spend a little time during the summer," said Kimberly Menke, Store Manager. "You want kids to be active and you want them to do everything and that means brains as well as physical."

The book give-away is April 3rd. Organizations interested in receiving books can learn more by clicking here.
