Join now and reap the rewards, including a year-round frequent buyer program, seasonal store-wide sales, early access to events, discounts, and more.
Every year, we celebrate the holiday season by supporting a local charity that needs books. Between November 27 and December 31, you'll get 20% off any books you buy for Genesis. We'll collect them and give them directly to Genesis.
Genesis is a small, inter-generational community in Northwest DC, consisting of 27 affordable apartments for seniors, for young families transitioning out of foster care, and for other families. At Genesis, neighbors commit to supporting each other and the community. Everyone has value and everyone contributes, whatever their talents. Genesis is building its library and needs books for all ages.
