Jamestown, N.Y. – Continuing their annual tradition, the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Jamestown (UUCJ) will again be having a Halloween Book Giveaway during Jamestown’s Trick or Treat hours, 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 31, 2023.
The church at 1255 Prendergast Avenue will be open for kids, teens and adults to enjoy treats, choose books from a large selection for all ages, and do a simple craft, if they would like.
Inspired by research showing that growing up with more books in their home increases a person’s literacy and educational achievement, the UUCJ Social Justice Committee is committed to making more books available to children in the Jamestown community.
The two book boxes in front of the church building—one for children and one for adults—are filled with books that are free for the taking. The church also encourages reading by giving books to Fletcher Elementary School kindergarteners.
There is parking behind the church.
