Book Shopping this Weekend?

If you're in the market anything at Barnes & Noble this weekend, please see the following note from Pi Phi land and have your purchase help enhance the lives of others!
Greetings! This weekend members of the NC Alpha Chapter (that's Pi Beta Phi at UNC-CH!) will be participating in a fundraising event for UNC Family Medicine's Reach Out and Read Program. The NC Alpha Chapter plans to start working more with this organization with their literacy activities. See below for an opportunity to support the Reach Out and Read Program, if you shop at Barnes and Noble this weekend.

UNC Family Medicine and Barnes & Noble Bookstores are partnering together to raise the capital our clinic needs to start our Reach Out and Read literacy initiative and we need YOUR help!

It's very simple! Just visit your local Barnes & Noble store this weekend and notify your cashier that you wish your purchases to count toward the UNC Family Medicine Bookfair # 223636! That's it!
UNC Family Medicine will receive a portion of all Bookfair sales toward our Reach Out and Read startup fees.

Also, four RTP area Barnes & Nobles Bookstores (both Durham stores, the Cary store, and the Brier Creek store) will be hosting events on those days!

Reach Out and Read is a national literacy initiative that aims to make literacy a standard part of pediatric primary care, so that children grow up with books and a love of reading.

UNC Family Medicine wants to start offering the Reach Out and Read program to our pediatric patients. Help us help our children develop their literacy skills and their love of books!
