We’re known for collecting books for our big sale, but we also give books away. We have a fair amount of foot traffic past our office– usually people walking to the bus stop– so we’ve started giving away books under our big umbrella.
A few weeks ago we had a call from the Ohio Reading Corps, a branch of Americorps, wondering if we could give them some books for their reading program. We could. Here are some of our volunteers with an Ohio Reading Corps tutor, just before we figured out how to put a pallet’s worth of books into his Honda Accord.
We give books to Dave Hurwitz as well– we hope you’ve seen his wonderful truck full of free books at festivals and in the Oregon District.
We’ve given books to camps, preschools, clinics, community kitchens, shelters, and jails. If you have a group who could use some books, let us know.
You can reach us at 937.999.4491 or send us a message through this site.
And don’t forget that on the last day of our sale, Monday from eight a.m. to noon, you can pay one dollar to get in and take away all the books you want.
