Book collection — Amherst League of Women Voters

April 3, 2009

Well I don’t know about everyone else, but the amount of books that I accumulate every year is obscene. I covet books. I love the smell, the feeling of the pages, the satisfaction of being able to pull out any favorite passage at any time. But, again. Obscene. Luckily I came across this little tidbit on the Amherst Chamber of Commerce site:

Book Collection for Amherst League of Women Voters
Ongoing until April 24, 2009

The Amherst League of Women Voters is collecting books at their work site, 479 West St. Unit 8, at the Hadley Stop&Shop, at the UPS Store on University Drive and the Jones, Munson and North Amherst libraries. No musty or mildewed books, please, and no magazines.

The book sale will take place on the Common May 1, 2, and 3.

When I showed it to A, he immediately commented on how timely it was to our planned spring cleaning, and I couldn’t agree more. We’ve got some computer books & some college texts we no longer have use for, but haven’t donated before for lack of a good place to do so. And the LWV is a worthy organization if there ever was one.
