Gift Wrapping with Book'em


Want to volunteer to wrap presents this holiday season? Look no further!
 
Each holiday season Book'em partners with Parnassus Books to provide gift wrappers in their store. We set up a gift wrapping area towards the back of the store and after customers check out, they are encouraged to have their books wrapped for free by Book'em volunteers (you!). We accept tips for the service, all of which will go directly to Book'em to help us make sure all kids have a good book to read this holiday season. A few tips can go quite far - a $3 tip will buy a book for a child. Last year, we raised over $1,000! 
 
Our mission at Book'em is to bring kids and books together. We fulfill this mission by stocking little libraries throughout the community, fulfilling book requests from community organizations, and providing reading role models for MNPS classrooms. 

Our dates of service for gift wrapping at Parnassus will be: 11/29 - 12/1, 12/6 - 12/8, 12/13 - 12/23
