Independent bookstore celebrates fifth anniversary

Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 19 and 20, independent bookstore Reader’s Cove, at Lemay Avenue and Harmony Road in Fort Collins, is celebrating its fifth anniversary with free books, $1 fiction titles and ever-popular free cupcakes from Fiona’s next door.

Any purchase over $10 earns a copy of local author Mark Hoog’s “Letters from Katrina: Stories of Hope and Inspiration,” a New York Times No. 1 bestselling kid’s book.

On Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Reader’s Cove will team up with United Way of Larimer County for Family Volunteer Day. Tables will be set up so families can work together to make no-sew fleece scarves and blankets for low-income kids and families in the county. Reader’s Cove will also be collecting toiletry items — deodorant, toothbrush or toothpaste — and new hats, gloves, and scarves to donate them to local agencies.

For more information on Family Volunteer Day, contact Stephanie Ashley, 970-407-7054 or go to the United Way website.
