We are coming up on our third anniversary for the Ruth Mini Mobile Library. I always like to wrap up with some end of the year announcements. The Library will be closed starting November 1, 2019, and will reopen when it’s safe to be out in public.
Update: As of January 1, 2019 the Ruth Mini Mobile Library is up and running. We are still giving books away, but events are limited. An Online Catalog (OPAC) is in the works and is expected to be completed by the end of 2020.
One of the best books I received was a 1937 edition of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea and a 1950 edition of Leaves of Grass. Can you believe that someone was going to throw these books away in the trash? It’s heartbreaking, to say the least.
Several people have asked me why I’m doing this, and my answer is simple: I love books, I love free stuff, and I love giving away free books. I want to make sure that no one ever has an excuse not to be reading.
