Card Carrying Books and Gifts in Corning will be hosting sign-making events for the Women’s March in Elmira on Sunday, Jan. 30.
Anyone can create a sign at the store for free on Friday from noon to 6 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
“We’re really hoping people attend this since it’ll be the first local women’s march,” Sarah Blagg, co-owner of Card Carrying Books and Gifts, said. “It is sometimes easier to make these signs if they can brainstorm with other people, so we hope people will come in, get chatting with other customers and make their signs.”
The store is also accepting donated items, like stickers, markers or glue, to decorate the signs.
After the march, the store is looking to collect come of the signs to create an exhibit at the bookstore.
Card Carrying Books and Gifts is located on 15 E Market St #102, Corning,
