Reading books illuminates our minds and our community. Sadly, that light is about to go out with the closure of Laredo’s only bookstore. Bookstores play a vital role in a community, helping to foster literacy, share knowledge, acquire information, spark curiosity and engage the imagination. Bookstores are wonderful resources for students, teachers, schools and other literacy related activities. No community should be without a bookstore. Keep the light on and bring a bookstore to Laredo. Add your voice to ours.
