Go Bibliophiles!

Posted by blatantbibliophiles on May 4, 2009

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Blatant Bibliophiles book drive. We had over 500 books donated to the Canton Family Violence Center. Meghan F.’s mom took these books to the shelter last week where they are starting a new library for the children and teens who are there with their families while they are unable to be in their regular homes due to violent situations. This is a truly wonderful thing you have done in helping these families. The winners of the Barnes & Noble gift cards were Falyn T., who donated the most books, and Marlize S. and Paul B. who were winners in our random drawing. I would especially like to thank those who donated: Megan B., Paul B. (who donated 69 books), Emilie Ko. (who donated 75 books!), Marlize S. (who donated 49 books), Alex D., Haley P., Mrs. Shearer, Eli C., Sabrina G., Ashley J., Mrs. Shugart, Katie B., Falyn T., Tim D., Jessica H., Danielle C., Paige A., Kasey W., Sarah D., Alisha O. (who donated 49 books), and teen author Melissa Walker. Our book drive was featured this weekend on the readergirlz blog as part of their coverage of Teen Book Drop 2009.  You can read about it us at http://readergirlz.blogspot.com/2009/05/yay-for-blatant-bibliophiles.html. Your generosity was truly amazing! Thanks, guys!
