Donations Sought For New Orleans Public Library
I saw this posted this morning on author MJ Rose's Buzz, Balls & Hype Blog.
In an effort to restock its shelves after Hurricane Katrina, the New
Orleans Public Library is asking for donations of hardcovers and
paperbacks for people of all ages. Library staff will decide which
books should go into its collection; the rest will go to destitute
families or be sold to raise funds for the library.
Please send books to: Rica A. Trigs, Public Relations, New Orleans
Public Library, 219 Loyola Ave., New Orleans, La. 70112.
Apparently if donors mention to the Postal Service that the books are for the library in New Orleans, they will be able to send the books at the library rate, which is slightly less than the book rate.
