Today is the 16th annual Read Across America day. This is a program that I think is fabulous because I loved to read as a child & I still try to get in as much reading as I can.
Read Across America is dedicated to motivating children in all communities to celebrate reading in conjunction with the beloved children’s author Dr. Seuss, whose birthday is tomorrow, March 2nd. Who doesn’t love Dr. Seuss’ books?!
As a professional organizer, I am urging all of you to round up those books that you no longer read, need, have grown out of and are gathering dust and donate them.
Here in Mankato our library has a designated monthly donation day. Donations of new or gently used books can be made on the first Saturday of every month from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm at the Blue Earth County Library Garage, located at 100 East Main Street in Mankato.
To make donations outside of the designated time, please call the library at (507) 304-4005.
To learn more and to find out what is accepted, please visit their website here.
For those of you who are not in the Mankato, MN area, I urge you to do a search “where to donate books” in your area so you too can pass on your books to give a little bit of enjoyment to someone else. There are many places that would be happy to receive your donations.
Be Awesome! Be a Book Nut! ~ Dr. Seuss
