When it rains, it pours, both literally and figuratively. Yes, we had a leak and lost a few hundred books and several of our banker boxes. We moved all the books, added tarps and mopped it all up. Our landlord is looking for a roofer but there are not too many available this week.
When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. We had over 5000 books donated on Thursday. So, we raised the limits and are encouraging people to come take books back to their hopefully dry classrooms and programs. We actually have a surplus of books in almost every category including foreign language and easy to read books.
We got an amazing donation from Tender Hearts Preschool in Benicia. There are great sets of good quality literature available right now.
So, this might be a good time to brave the rain and get some great books for your kids to read on rainy days.
We are open every Tuesday and Thursday from 3-6 PM.
If you have books to donate, please call us at 510-408-7323.
Our address is:
955 12th St, Oakland, 94607
Please remember to bring boxes and bags for your books.
