Summer Closing & Cleaning

Packing sessions are cancelled in August while we clean!
2015 is our 25th year, and sometimes it feels like we have accumulated a quarter-century of dust. We will will be closed for cleaning and reorganization on Tuesday, August 11th, Saturday, August 15th, Tuesday, August 18th, and Tuesday, August 25th. Join us on September 1st for our grand re-opening, and mark your calendar for September 5th - spend part of your Labor Day weekend doing labor for a great cause at our all-day Pack-a-Thon!

  • Donate books

  • Why do this?

    We believe education, not incarceration, is the answer to the devastating effects that social, educational, and economic inequality has on communities. Learn more
