Your donations of books and cash have allowed us to raise funds for local literacy programs and occasionally place a rare book in a scholarly collection where it is appreciated by many,
Over the last few years, we have been able to do more for our community. Traditionally our bake sale funds a $500 textbook scholarship; this sale, we were able to fund two! Help us keep growing!
Our organization is completely volunteer! Which means we need to make the most of our time. PLEASE do not donate things we cannot use.
We gladly accept donations of BOOKS, CDs, and DVDs . But please remember no magazines or household items! This week we've received 2 throw pillows, a shadow box, and crafting supplies. Oh yeah, and old reel-to-reel tapes! Thanks
Help us further our mission with a tax deductible donation!
