In the Works

As the front porch becomes more and more crowded and the stacks of The Autobiography of Meatball Finklestein grow ever loftier, we’re looking for ways to transplant our success to other spaces.

Currently under consideration is a lending/donation hybrid program with the Big Bend Homeless Coalition’s Hope Community. It seems like a good fit: books we can’t use get passed on to another charitable group and are ultimately read by children encountering homelessness. Kary envisions sending small collections home with families when they transition to permanent housing, the books acting as a parting gift to the children of these families, and giving them a foundation upon which to build literacy with their own small home library.
