Thank you to everyone who joined us in supporting Sylvan Park Elementary while indulging in the joy of reading. Your contributions help make a difference for our school, and we are truly grateful for your generosity.

From 3-6pm on April 20, 2024, the Sylvan Park PTO received 10% of all sales made at Parnassus Books. Whether you were searching for books for your kiddos, yourself, or some amazing signed editions for gifts, it was the perfect time to visit. We hope you took advantage of this opportunity, and we extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated. Your support means the world to us!

Parnassus Books, located in Green Hills, is an independent bookstore beloved by our community. Founded in 2011 by novelist Ann Patchett and her business partner, Karen Hayes, Parnassus offers an extensive and exciting selection of books, including fiction, non-fiction, children’s literature, local interests, and the arts. We hope you found some wonderful reads to enjoy.
