Victoria Theatre Association — in partnership with Project READ, Teradata Cares, and City Day Community School — is pleased to announce the READ ACROSS AMERICA BOOK DRIVE. As further illustration of our commitment to education and to quality of life in our community, VTA will be collecting new or gently used books for grades PreK-8. VTA hopes to collect a book for every seat in the Victoria Theatre — 1,154 books! Follow us on Facebook (@VictoriaTheatreAssociation), Instagram (@VTADayton) and Twitter (@VictoriaTheatre) to see how the theatre fills up with books!
Collection bins will be located at the Schuster Center, Victoria Theatre, Arts Garage, and Teradata beginning January 20 with VTA’s Morris Furniture Co. Family Series presentation of MR. POPPER’S PENGUINS at the Victoria Theatre. On March 2, some of the books collected will be delivered to City Day Community School with each student going home with a book of their very own. Additional books will be donated to Project READ.
As part of the collection project, Citilites Restaurant at the Schuster Center will be doing a lunchtime “Books for Tots” promotion January 22-26. Each dine-in lunch customer who brings a book donation will receive a free small order of delicious tater tots.
