Jan's Book Angels
Everyone should know the wonder of opening a new book! Each holiday season, Anderson’s Bookshops and generous donors put books into the hands of disadvantaged children through our Jan’s Book Angel program, named after our beloved Jan Dundon, former children’s manager at our Naperville store, whose tireless work for children inspires us all.
Anderson's offers a 20% discount on Book Angel purchases by our Anderson's members and not-for profit groups. All other purchasers earn a 10% discount on Book Angel books.
Giving can be as easy as purchasing a gift card in any denomination you choose. We will use your gift card to select books for children in need. Or stop in to any of our three locations and choose a child's name from our Book Angel Tree, and purchase a new book from Anderson's for that child. To make it even easier, our expert booksellers have pre-selected favorite books for children on our Book Angel list!
Last year, more than 2,200 children received a brand new book for the holidays thanks to you!
Local partners include: Bridge Communities, SmartSteps, Humanitarian Service Project, Indian Prairie Community Unit School Dist. 204, Naperville Community Unit School Dist. 203, Headstart Lifelink, Community Health Nursing Services, Downers Grove School Dist. 58, Woodridge School Dist. 68 and Chicago Public School Dist. 299.
