Greetings. I THINK I’ve responded to all emails. There’s a chance I haven’t. There’s 30K words of my new book due to my writing group on Sunday so naturally I’m blogging with you all instead.
THANK YOU! You all are one generous bunch of mammals! You are from every English speaking country on the planet at this point. You care about books and young adults and care that no one who wants to read is left without books to read.
Many of you have posted suggestions that we are looking into. I’ve passed on your links, your grant suggestions, etc. to the people who can best deal with them. I am learning to delegate authority and put myself out of work. Yay!
Green Bay is lovely by the way. JUNE is a good month for Green Bay. Mild not too humid. And these people love craft beer and cheese with such abandon it’s rather fun to watch. Back in California I’m sure someone would have told me not to sample 20 kinds of cheese NOT so in Wisconsin. I digress.
Word has spread like summer fire and students are coming to the library in the summer to help out. We have a team of kids coming in Monday to help clean off the dust, pack up trophies from the glory days and scrub the grime from the room as well as knock out all the recycling.
Everyone rather be reading. I have a feeling this library will morph into one the parents and staff use as well.
Since I get so many repeat questions, I thought I’d reiterate here.
Yes we take used and paperback provide they look/feel newish.
Yes we are 7th-12th grade. Not collecting in particular for younger grades.
There are a few books we have multiple copies of which will be great for class sets: Book Thief, House on Mango Street, and Diary of a Part-Time Indian. Ya’ll LOVE those books.
Yes we have a donation plan coming into place for sharing duplicates with other area libraries.
Address wise—the school building will be closed for vacation July 1-15. Please send books to PO Box 585 Greenville, CA 95947 during this time. If you need a street address email me.
