Re: The Gift of Books


    Our local library and libraries in neighboring towns have yearly book sales as fundraisers. Our extended family is large, and this year we are shopping during the summer and getting people used books for Christmas gifts. We are putting thought and effort in to each person’s interests, hobbies, etc and asking them if they have already read certain titles. They are aware of our book recycling plan and are excited! We plan on “wrapping” the books in fabric drawstring bags we are making ourselves from fabric purchased off season at 1.00 per yard. They really look nice and can be recycled for future use. This has turned into a fun family project and has made library sales and yard sales a real treasure hunt for good books.
