Define “the best.”
Here are three possible answers: Indie bookstores, the people who support them, and the people who run them.
This year, the generous patrons of five bookstores donated 789 books to the low-income, at-risk, and rural kids CLiF serves.
Above: Joan Eldred, Hiata DeFeo, and Duncan celebrate Bridgeside Books’ Giving Tree book drive: the Waterbury bookstore collected 320 books to benefit CLiF.
We don’t have all the books counted yet, but I can’t wait to tell you. This holiday season, book drives brought in more than 800 books to give kids served through CLiF programs.
