Anchors from Anchorage Book Drive

A statement from the organizer:

In conjunction with the 2022 Book Fair, the APS Library has partnered with Martha Jane Potter Elementary School in Whitesburg, Kentucky. As a result of the recent floods in Eastern Kentucky, the school library was totally destroyed, losing all its books. The Anchorage Community can now help rebuild the Martha Jane Potter School’s library by purchasing ANCHORS (books) by clicking the donate now button below. With each ANCHOR purchased for $20, a new library book will be donated to the  Martha Jane Potter Elementary School's library



Blue Marble Books was founded by Tina Moore in 1979 as a way to promote youth literacy and a joy for reading. We continue that legacy to this day, curating a space where children can discover the magic of books and the adventures to be found therein.

We are happy to assist you in finding the perfect book for your reader, whether they are 18 months or 18 years old, or somewhere in between!
