Hi,  Can I get some suggestions on the best way to go about getting books to donate to the patients where I work?  I work for a substance abuse facility so the books can have no alcohol or drug references or subjects.  I will purchase the books if I can just be guided in a direction.  Thanks for any and all suggestions.

Contact local churches or teen GS troops--they are always doing "drives" to collect things for charitable giving AND they'd probably appreciate something that does not have to happen around the DEC holidays!

Check with the boy scouts, too. This could be a project for a young man to take on as his Eagle project.
