I am very excited to inform you that we have been able to arrange a private school tour of Powell's City of Books this month. We will be learning about the history of the store and company, as well as exploring their collection of over 1,000,000 books! If you are not familiar with Powell's, feel free to explore their website here: http://www.powells.com/
This trip coincides with VIP day but takes place after the conclusion of that event.
Each student will have a stipend of $10 to spend on books during this trip! Please do not send students with extra money. You are highly encouraged to visit the store as a family another time.
