After hearing about our book drive, the CBC donated a huge box of brand-new Mr. Dressup books, including school workbooks.
By that afternoon, the Book Bank had already sent the books along to neighbourhood schools that will put them to good use. The rest of the books will stay in the Book Bank and be handed out to local children.
Thanks also to L.B., who donated a big bag of beautiful hardcover books that will be much loved by their new owners.
I'll be going back to the Book Bank near the end of next week, so it's not too late to donate your excellent used or new books. For more information see the post, below.
I took a tour through the Book Bank and it really is fantastic. The books are lovingly displayed and I was very impressed by the excellent titles - these are not "cast-off" books. They're popular current titles and series. After I got home, Kim at the Book Bank sent me an e-mail thanking everyone for their generosity. Ditto from me!
