As you know, I am not much of a reader myself, but I have a lot of books in my home, haha.  I remember being excited about the book fair when I was a kid.

As an avid book reader, will you be attending? That sounds like a great place to pick up some new reading material.

If we lived in the area, my wife would be front and center as a volunteer. She likes books and helping people find the right one.

Roy it is amazing that while money donations are always good for a cause, people just do not realize how important 'VOLUNTEER's' are to any function.  Large or small.  m

When I was a kid, I virtually lived at our local library.  It was just 3 blocks from home.
