Dear OBS Colleagues,
Please see the message below from Stacy Etheredge and (Chief Justice John Roberts' new favorite librarian) John Cannan:
To paraphrase our favorite Philadelphian, Ben Franklin, the theme for
the SR-SIS's 2015 Annual Children's Book Drive is "A Book in the Hand
is Worth Two in the Store!", meaning that all of the shiny, new books in
Barnes and Noble can't hold a candle next to one well-loved book in one
child's hand. Especially a child that doesn't get to go to Barnes and
Well, the response to the Book Drive so far has been incredible.
Believe it or not, AALL members have already donated over 300 books. At
an estimate of $7 per book, that's already $2100 worth of books for the
drive. And AALL is still one week away!
From all of us at SR-SIS, thank you so much. But remember, our
thanks are just a proxy for the thanks of the children of Philadelphia
who will benefit from your generosity.
For those of you who haven't yet donated, it's easy! Just visit us at our website: Annual Book Drive.
