I’ve gotten some readers asking how they can donate books to me. This is incredibly kind, generous, and would make my wife scream. I’m tempted, but we certainly don’t have space for more books.
I have an idea that I’d like to try out, and I need some help. I work with a lot of kids and people who don’t have any books in their homes. Some of them don’t have homes at all. But they come to the library because we keep things for them that they can enjoy.
As nice as libraries are, ownership of books can be invaluable, especially for kids. So here’s what I’m proposing:
If you have books you’re looking to get rid of because…
1. You’ve read them and they’re taking up space
2. You haven’t read them and you never will and they’re taking up space
3. You just want to do something nice for someone
…please consider sending them to me and I’ll let you know how when you contact me.
Don’t worry about the types of books. I’ll find a use for everything.
Donate to who?
If you have a group in mind and you know they exist in Salt Lake City, please feel free to suggest who I can give them to.
Otherwise, here’s who I’ve got in mind that I have professional connections with:
- The homeless
- At risk teens
- Programs like the Boys And Girls Club
I will be able to find a use for anything you send.
I’m thrilled about this experiment and think we could do a lot of good things with it. Please contact me with any questions and feel free to make any suggestions that could make this more successful.
