New Orleans Public Library is asking for any and all hardcover and paperback books to restock the shelves after Katrina. The library staff will assess which titles will be designated for the shelves. The rest will be distributed to destitute families or sold for library fundraising. The books can be sent to:
Rica A Trigs, Public Relations
New Orleans Public Library
219 Loyola Avenue
New Orleans, LA70112-2007
If you tell the post office that the books are for the library in New Orleans, they will give you the library rate that is less than book rate. Good way to clean out those books you won’t read again and write the donation off your taxes.
Please share this information with your friends and family …
It is a great opportunity to help. If you don’t have books, they have a fund for donations at: http://nutrias.org/info/friends/friends.htm
