Eco-Libris is available now at Hooray for Books! in Old Alexandria, VA

Did you have the chance to visit Old Alexandria? This beautiful old town just outside Washington DC has now another exciting thing to offer: a bookstore where you can balance out your new books with Eco-Libris!

We're very happy to announce on a new bookstore from Old Alexandria: Hooray for Books!

Hooray for Books! is an independent bookstore, owned by Ellen Klein and Trish Brown, who worked at A Likely Story, and after that store closed, decided to re-open a children's bookstore at the same location in Old Town Alexandria. You can read more about them here, and here. The Washington Post ran an article about them on June 23 that you can find here.

Hooray For Books!, which is the only independent children's bookstore in Alexandria, VA, opened its doors in June 2008. They're committed to serving their community, not only by providing extraordinary customer service but also by being environmentally responsible. They believe that partnering with Eco-Libris helps us achieve both these goals.

Customers at Hooray For Books! will have the opportunity to pay $1 to plant a tree to balance each book they purchase in the store. They will also receive an Eco-Libris sticker (made of recycled paper) at the counter for each book they balance out, saying 'One tree planted for this book'.

We're very happy that our first collaboration in Virginia with such a great bookstore, and we invite everyone to visit the store and their website to learn more about them.
