Washin' Coin Laundry and Golden Springs Laundry Company wants to help put the joy back into reading for children by hosting a local book drive. Ken Barrett has made it a point to have children’s books available at every coin laundry store he owns in the area so kids will have some entertainment while they are there.
Gently used kids and young adult books are needed. Barrett now wants to collect enough books to have on hand for children to take home. Barrett says donated books can be dropped off at any Washin' Coins Laundry location.
On April 12th, Barrett hopes to have hundreds of books available to kids and he says he won’t stop promoting the book drive to help better children’s education within the community.
