We are giving away books!

Thank you so much for your participation in our project, Books for Crestline: to rebuild classroom libraries! We would like to offer you an update and inform you about our upcoming, final event.

Teacher book boxes are nearing completion; as long as we stay on target, books will be delivered within the next 2 weeks. Several orders have been made from non-profit community agencies who work with children and are in need of literature. After fulfilling all of these needs, we have found that we have a surplus of books.

Books for Crestline will be hosting our last event in one week on Saturday, April 20th 2013 from 2PM to 4PM at 2106 SE 134th Ave. Vancouver, WA 98683. This will be a book giveaway to distribute leftover books to members of our community who serve children, both formally and informally. Registration--which can be completed online or at the event--will be required to receive books. Check out the flyer for details about the event as well as a registration form. These forms must be printed and brought to the event if you choose to fill them out ahead of time. 

Please email me at if you have any questions! 

See you next Saturday, rain or shine!

Attention Community!

Teacher book boxes are being packed as we speak! Or rather, as I write. Truthfully, after I write, since I'm the one who packs book boxes and I'm currently typing.

That means we are finishing distribution Step 1. Now we will move into distributing the excesses.

Here's where I need your help!

Step 2: If you know of any non-profit community agencies in our community in need of books, please contact me with information about the group as well as a person I can contact.

Step 3: If you teach children, formally or informally, stay tuned for information about a BOOK GIVEAWAY that will be scheduled in the next several weeks. Registration will be required, and preregistration will be available shortly.

If anyone is still following this process, I apologize for my internet absence. 


I am overwhelmed by the generosity of so many members of our community. We collected just shy of 5,000 book titles and are almost ready to deliver to Crestline teachers.

I am busily packing up book orders over here! :)

Summoning Volunteers

Our last book drive is TOMORROW. See the sidebar for details -->

The next steps will be to complete our inventory, finish sorting books, and finalize everything so we can get these books into the hands of teachers!

Although tomorrow is our last scheduled event, we still have a lot of work ahead of us! If you are willing to volunteer your time tomorrow morning between 9:30 and 12:30 or sometime next week, please email me your availability at

First Drive: A Success!

Our first book drive was a success. We had 30 donors come out and were able to get through inventorying 1,000 books, with more left to do. Thank you so much for all those who participated! I appreciate seeing community members come together for a good cause.

Here are some pictures to document our progress:
