Hey guys! On the 16th of December, we mailed out ten large boxes of books and snacks to soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thank you for your donations. We are sending off boxes of videos to injured soldiers next week. Keep up the good work!

March Madness-Bookaneer Style


In March, Molly Engle and her mother, on a college tour, took a side trip to Sparta, Georgia and delivered close to 1000 books and magazines to the Hancock County Library in Sparta, Georgia. This was the first rural public library Molly called and they immediately said that they'd appreciate anything. They were especially pleased to see all of the SAT, ACT and AP prep books. Librarians Ms. Donna Posley and Uganda Birston helped unload the SUV in the rain!

And another one!


Thank you for all the great books that you donated to the Hancock County. It's like Christmas morning opening all those bags and boxes.

How great to hear!

We always love these


Ooh, a note!

Good day,

I would like to thank you for your generous donation of gently used books to the Lindbergh Children's Center in 2008. Some books were placed in the waiting and examining rooms while others were given to several children from low-income families. Parents often read with their children while waiting to see the physician, thereby promoting literacy. Anxious children often are calmed while looking through the colorful, friendly pictures in the books we now have available. Additionally, the books serve as a reminder to the physicians to encourage parents to join the library and use other resources to foster increased reading at home. We are very appreciative of your contribution and hope that we can continue to participate in your valuable program.

Sorry for the delay in my email to you but on behalf of the Grady North Fulton Clinic staff, please express our gratitude on your book donation. It means so much to be able to give books to our patients, to calm them during anxiety-provoking medical procedures, and to model reading and promote literacy.
Thanks for keeping us on your list and thanks again for your help.
