REACH a Reader is a second-hand book store that provides first-rate literacy services in the Sioux Empire.
All our books are donated. The books are curated and then resold in our brick and mortar store or online. The store is a unique way to support literacy. It helps fund our programs year-round — and families can take home five free children's books when they visit.
The store is open for shopping, donations, and online book pick-up.
