Our Adult Fiction Committee has been doing a great job of reviewing their collection and making room for new titles. Last week the withdraw cart was full of great titles but the condition of the books were gently used. What to do? Never fear — one of our volunteers, Pam Gillis, came to the rescue. She has been sending books to our troops in Afghanistan for their enjoyment and took a look at the cart of books and pulled over 75% of the titles to send.
Not only is our withdrawn adult fiction finding a good home, but the children's is also. Last week we donated gently used children's fiction titles to Kids Corner, the after school drop in child care at the Summit. Jeanette William from Canton Leisure Services picked up approximately 100 books.
It is great to know our books are finding new homes and we are contributing to being green.

This class emphasizes free expression with a focus on artistic creation. Linda's patience and love for writing and teaching makes this a very popular program each summer.
