Barbershop Literacy Initiative



Five Barbershops in Moore County are preparing young brains for school and inspiring a new generation of readers.  Every time a young child enters these businesses , they enjoy a new haircut AND receive a new, engaging book to take home.  Families also learn the importance of reading together every day.  Participating barbershops include:

  • Blendz Barbershop - 1020 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Southern Pines, NC 28387
  • Graham's Barbershop - 1361 N. Sandhills Blvd., Aberdeen, NC 28315
  • King's Barbershop - 602 Magnolia Drive, Aberdeen, NC 28315
  • Heads Up Barber Academy - 101 S. McNeil St., Carthage, NC 28327
  • Vass Barbershop - 3478 US-1 Bus., Vass, NC 28394

The Barbershop Literacy Initiative is funded by the United Way of Moore County.
