Discussion: Donating Books
This past weekend LD and I were moving the furniture around and had to take all my books off the shelves to move the bookcase. I started looking through the books and found many that I knew I wouldn't read again, that I got free, and that I didn't like but knew someone else might.
I bagged up over 20 books and took them to my local library today. The librarian was over joyed to see them as most of their funding for new books has been cut. They take what the can use and what they can't they then donate them to a local charity and they sell them on for profit to help the organization.
This got me thinking. We all have shelves and shelves of books. Why don't we pass them on??
I'm guessing we all have several books we won't read again and are just collecting dust. Although the thought of having my own library brings a smile to my face, I should pass on some of the goodness that has been bestowed upon me.
Can you find 3 books on your self that you can donate to your local library, literacy center, or favorite charity? Let's pass on our love of reading and good books for others to enjoy also.
Who is with me??
