Over the past year and a half, several volunteers have taken extra books from The Front Porch Library and shared them with Hope Community, our local homeless shelter. In addition, we’ve helped organize their Learning Center, a children’s library and play space in the family dorm. If you have donated books to us and we already have a copy or two, they will likely land there. Check out Hope Community, if you haven’t already. You’ll be glad you did.
