I am working on building a library for a boys home in our area for Christmas.  My oldest son lives there and recently told me he has read all the books that they have for 9th grade reading level.  I came to find out the book supply is very limited.  The home is a christian based private home that houses up to 25 boys ages 8-18.  About 99% of these boys are wards of the state and we all know how well that pays. If anyone has an extra book or two that would be great for this age group I would love some help building this library.

Thanks,  Heather

P.S.  Hope I put this in the right spot!

Thanks Meaghan and JoAnn!  I can't wait to surprise the boys with a few books and I hope to build more over time.

I'd be glad to help with credits so you can order more books.  However, I'd like to know the name of the home and the city, if you don't mind.   Thanks!  And Good luck!
