St. Charles book store fundraiser to support books for teens in detention

Town House books to give 20% of all sales Sept. 3

ST. CHARLES – The public is invited to visit Town House Books & Café, 105 N. Second Ave., St. Charles from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 3 to participate in a Giving Tuesday fundraiser for the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center’s Book Club, officials announced in a news release.

Twenty percent of all sales in the bookstore and cafe will be donated, the release stated.

This is the second year in a row that the Townhouse Books & Café is participating in the fundraising sale for Giving Tuesday.

The vision of the Juvenile Justice Center Book Club is to use literature to awaken and inspire the juveniles, age 10 to 21 in detention, to their full potential and to give them the tools to pursue education and follow a positive new life path.

The Book Club meets once a week and is facilitated by a volunteer and a librarian from the St. Charles Public Library.

Last year, Town House Books donated $461.39 – 20 percent of its bookstore and café sales – to the Kane County Juvenile Justice Center’s Book Club as its Giving Tuesday recipient.

The funds were used for purchasing sets of books for discussions among other supportive materials.

Town House Books is an independent bookstore that opened in 1974. It carries over to the Town House Café, featuring a menu of fresh-from-scratch soups and creative sandwiches. The back courtyard is open for lunch every day, weather permitting.
