     When we moved to Cary, NC in 2004, I hosted a used book drive to celebrate my birthday, The next year, I continued the tradition with the goal to get a pile of books at least as tall as I was!  Each yeara after that, I did the same.  

​​Please consider donating a gently used book (or two or three…any type child/adult/fiction/non-fiction) for a worthy cause.

​​Additionally, this year I am also accepting DVD’s, CD’s, Video Games for Wii, PSP, and Xbox. If you live far away, you can also send a check or gift card to me which will be included in the collection. See the Contact page for additional information.

This Year's Celebration
I turned 18 this year and we hosted a mobile pizza party on the campus of St. Augustine's University at lunch time.  Everyone was invited to enjoy pizza and hopefully they would donate a book or 2!
