For Brian Morin, 11, an extraordinary gateway to “adventure” lurks within an unusual place: the corner of a room in a central Fresno 7-Eleven convenience store.
Brian usually stops by five days a week to check out books from a children’s library inside, created by store owners Sushil Prakash and Josephine Kiran as an incentive to get children in the neighborhood excited about reading.
The catch to lure kids? A free Slurpee or hot chocolate for every book read and summarized in a short book report.
Well shit one place you’re sure to find ALL the kids ALL the time is 7-11. Flamin hots, slurpees, books? I’m impressed.(via thelifeguardlibrarian)
