Update to the update: As of 11/15, we have collected 43 books! We have new wish lists, too — check out the navigation bar on the right to see them.
So! Our 2009 Warren H. Drumheller Memorial Book Drive kicked off on October 25, and we’re off to a fantastic start. So far, our customers have donated 27 books to nine local schools and child care centers. Last year we collected more than 200 books — this year, we’re aiming for 300. CAN WE DO IT? I think we can! Let’s rock and roll.
Need a refresher on how the Book Drive works? Here you go. And here are some quick links to the wish lists we’ve collected from area librarians so far:
Beverley Manor Elementary School
Beverley Manor Middle School
Hugh K. Cassell Elementary School
Clymore Elementary School

PS — if your school or child care center doesn’t have a wish list, it’s OK! Here are two things you can do: 1. Come in and choose a book from our in-stock selection. We’ve got thousands of titles to choose from, and we will be pleased to recommend something if you need help deciding. 2. Tell your librarian to send us a list!!
