Local kids of all ages- as well as adults- have one last chance to finish some summer reading before school starts thanks to an ongoing effort from the Butler Area School District.
The BookStop will make its final runs through the community on Wednesday, Aug. 14 to allow participants to pick out a free, gently-used book. Books for teens and adults have now been added to the BookStop collection.
Three routes are planned in order to reach as many people as possible.
