> 116 Summit (the yellow house in between Creston Way and 4th). Currently I'm
> urgently seeking donations of kids books, which I have trouble keeping in
> stock as they are so popular.
>
> Literary fiction for adults is the second most popular category. Can you
> help? Just put your donations inside the Library.
>
> I curate 2x daily to make sure it's not overloaded or too empty. The
> library box shifts about 3-4 books daily, it's fairly popular. If we get an
> overload of donations, I keep them in my vestibule and then put them out
> when the Library gets emptier. If any books prove unpopular with passers
> by, I then donate them to the public library book sale or the hospital. So,
> nothing is wasted.
>
> I've donated several dozen books myself, but most books are coming from
> you guys in the neighborhood. Thanks!
>
> The most popular books are pre-school up through about 4th grade level, as
> well as adult books that are Booker and Pulitzer prize nominees. Non
> fiction and mass market are not as popular except for anything by James
> Herriot.
