Help Collect a Million Books for Kids…

And have a good time while you’re doing it.


Get two tickets to an exclusive storytime with a Pittsburgh Pirate and a production of Peter and the Wolf on May 21, noon, when you bring one or two new or gently used books to Point Park University’s Pittsburgh Playhouse The Greater Pittsburgh Food Bank will distribute the books to needy children. So far, The Consortium for Public Education, a nonprofit that works in 25 school districts throughout southwestern Pennsylvania, has collected 885,000 books. Help them meet their goal and not only  will you see a Pirate player and Peter perform but receive two tickets for a future game and a free donut at Dunkin’ Donuts. To sign up  and for more details contact The Pittsburgh Pirates Bucaroos Kids Club.


About Tina Zubak

I've been a librarian at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh for about 12 years, first at the Beechview branch and now at Children's. I've written some books myself, but alas, no publications. Among my favorite books are BFG, Houndsley and Catrina and the Quiet Time, Ramona Quimby, Age 8, Nation and Rose Daughter.
