And so someone started one.
Since the book bank opened in May 2008, volunteers who staff the store have easily handed out, on average, 150 to 200 books a day. The rule is any child under 12 can receive one book per visit as well as the accompanying adult. Some families stop by every day.
Sounds like a wonderful idea to me. Have you ever noticed how hard it is to do anything useful with a book you’ve finished with? There are so many of them, even the used stores are overflowing. A major chain store near me – who shall remain nameless – has a bin at their buying station for “To Recycle” books. Why not give try giving them away?
