Downtown pop-up book shop
The Springfield Public Schools Foundation will host “One Eighty Six Books,” its first-ever pop-op book shop, on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 8 a.m.to 4 p.m. at the Old Capitol Farmers Market at 407 E. Adams in downtown Springfield. Proceeds from the event will be used to supply books for school libraries and classrooms district-wide. “We hope families will check out the new format of the event this year,” said Kate Dunne, Foundation Board Member and a co-chair of the event. “It is a unique opportunity to enjoy shopping downtown while supporting the students of District 186.” There will be a wide variety of books available for purchase for both children and adults.
