New books for free flowers
Royer’s Flowers & Gifts will kick off its annual Bouquets for Books with a Royer’s Kids Club event on Nov. 3.
The price of admission: a new children’s book.
In return, children ages 5 to 12 will have the opportunity to make a fall arrangement at 10 a.m. or 2 p.m.
Registration is required by calling any of Royer’s 17 stores — www.royers.com.
This year’s Bouquets for Books runs Nov. 2-10. In its first six years, the event has collected more than 10,000 new children’s books for public libraries in York, Berks, Cumberland, Dauphin, Lancaster and Lebanon counties.
For each book, donors will receive a free bouquet, up to three per family per visit, while supplies last. Used books will not be accepted.
