Fade to Books: Free Haircuts for Young Readers


Get a free haircut when you read a book out loud! Montclair’s Marc Williams (of Young’s World of Beauty, 307 Orange Rd # A, Montclair), and Mahir Abdul-Hakim (of Mahir’s Unisex Barbershop, 320 Orange Rd, Montclair), are graciously offering to cut young readers’ hair for free if they read a book while getting their haircut. Just go to either barbershop during listed hours and tell your barber you are ready to read for a haircut (please call ahead).

Participating youngsters will get to enter Montclair Public Library’s monthly drawing for Movie Tickets, Comics, Books & other prizes and you can pick out your free, new book! We are very grateful to East Side Mags and watchung booksellers for donating raffle prizes.
