Barbers with Books

● Books & Learning ●

The West Bloomington Revitalization Project has teamed up with local barbershops and salons to launch a program to offer young readers the chance to read a book to a barber – and get a discount on their haircuts. A collection of books for a variety of ages has been provided to the barbershops, and young readers will receive a $2 discount on their haircuts, courtesy of this new WBRP program. The Book Bike will also offer free books for children to take home.

Barbers with Books is a new initiative for WBRP, which sponsors the popular Book Bike that visits the Downtown Farmers’ Market and several west Bloomington locations.
