"Helping Books Find Libraries Since 2003"
I have been remiss in not posting about the Dewey Donation System earlier; it is a project of pamie and friends that send books and sometimes money to libraries in need. Often it is a surprise to the librarians when they start recieving the packages. Nice, huh? You have to use Amazon for the book donations which is a drag, but you will get over it.
Another site I like to peruse when I am feeling help-y is Donors Choose, which helps teachers get much-needed supplies for their students. Some projects in Philadelphia that intrigued me:
- Kids in Germantown need owl barf for science!
- Some reluctant readers need those comics!
- Second graders in Wissinoming want to snap photos for a neighborhood history project!
Of course, there are many proposals for basic school supplies and textbooks as well.
If you decide to sponsor a project or donate something, please let us know!
Thinking of the children,
