Have YOU Rocked the Drop?

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on April 15, 2009

Operation Teen Book Drop

Don’t forget that we are Rockin’ the Drop with the Readergirlz , YALSA, and GuysLitWire by bringing in our gently used children’s and teen books to donate to the Family Violence Center. Tomorrow, April 16, is Teen Literature Day, but we are extending the donation day through Friday, April 17. We even got books yesterday donated by readergirlz diva Melissa Walker! Please clean out your closets and bookshelves TODAY and bring in your books tomorrow or Friday. We have candy (!) and we are giving away two Barnes and Noble gift cards. One to the person who donates the most books and one to a person whose name is drawn randomly from all donors. If you have donated books already and I did not take your picture, please come back in and remind me to snap a pic to send to readergirlz. Oh, and by the way, as of this minute we have 407 books donated so far! No, wait. Falyn just came in with three boxes FULL of books, about 200 more books!!!!!! Hooray! But bring in more books, please, the Family Violence Center is counting on us!

  2. I just read the post at the readergirlz blog about your club’s generous donation to and support of Operation TBD. I am so impressed, and so grateful! Thank you SO much! You girlz and guys are AWESOME!

    Are you going to hang out with us this month as we discuss RED GLASS by Laura Resau? I hope so. See you at the blog!

      Thanks, Little Willow! We are so proud of our kids and teachers who donated so generously to the kids and teens at our local Family Violence Shelter via Teen Book Drop. The shelter was thrilled with our donation which will help them start a children’s library. Can’t wait to see the Red Glass discussion. Thanks to Bildungsromans and readergirlz for supporting teen readers, and thanks to readergirlz, YALSA, and GuysLitWire for promoting Teen Book Drop!

  3. You are welcome! Keep in touch. 🙂
