MANCHESTER - Don't miss an opportunity to make a difference in a child's life with a book.

The Northshire Bookstore has announced the start of their annual Book Angel Program for the 2012 season - a program that endeavors to put books into the hands of children that otherwise do not have access to them.

A Christmas tree is up in the Childrens Department decorated with paper angels that illustrate the first name of each child and their interests. Customers can become involved in several ways: they can choose an angel off the tree to make a book match, or make a monetary donation through the register or donation cans that are placed at each register, book club dollars and gift cards may also be donated. For every five books purchased the Northshire donates one. For more information on this and other events, call 802-362-2200 or 1-800-437-3700, or visit the Northshire Bookstore website at www.northshire.com.
