Many of you know I run a community library at a local nonprofit, Alternatives for Girls. We have a great collection. Our women's studies collection would impress academics and women studies majors and our youth collection is chock full of work by women about girls and women of color which reflects the community we serve. We have a solid collection of multicultural literature because our girls need to know the world is larger than the city boundaries. Still, there are areas I struggle to fill: new releases in children's and YA literature, graphic novels, comics and biographies.

Our summer, Rise -N- Shine program for elementary and middle school girls begins the end of June so this is the best time to run our book drive. Please share our wish list at Powell Books. It would be huge help if you would post to your social network sites or blog about our drive and leave a link to our wish list on your sidebar between now and July 1.

We thank you in advance for your support. If you have any questions, please contact me at cora_litgroup@yahoo.com.

Thank you,
