The Tioga Arts Council’s Youth Gallery releases ‘Book Wishlist’

The Tioga Arts Council (TAC), in partnership with Riverow Bookshop, is asking for help with a special campaign called TAC Youth Gallery – Book Wishlist. 

TAC has compiled a list of 30 books it would like to have available for young visitors in its youth gallery. They are asking for interested supporters to review the wish list, and then purchase and donate the book to TAC for the youth space.

Christina Di Stefano, TAC director, stated, “Through this effort, our hope is to champion the arts and literacy, support a nonprofit and local business, and make this community space more vibrant.”
