Open Books

22 notes

Earlier this year at Open Boxes, Open Books’ warehouse sale, our book guys noticed a group of teachers that were perusing the stacks and filling multiple boxes with children’s books.  (Individual book prices are quite low - but the real deal is to fill a box for $30!).  When they were checking out, the teachers mentioned that the PTA at their school had specifically fundraised to buy 30 boxes of books at the sale; at that point, the school didn’t have a library for their students.  Dustin and Aaron, moved by the spirit of the school’s community, offered to match the school’s purchase box for box with FREE books.  The pictures you see here are of Rowe Elementary’s new library!  The students and faculty of Rowe were thrilled to finally have one, and Open Books was proud to be a part if its establishment.
