Books to Bars Book Drive, Nov 15-Dec 15

Books_to_Bars_logo2_150x150.jpgArtword Artbar at 15 Colbourne  is one of the bars supporting the fine effort of the “Books to Bars” book drive. There is a drop-box at our entrance. “Bring your old soft cover books, or national geographic magazines to any of the venues listed, and everything you donate will go directly to a local jail or prison, where there is no funding for reading material, and where a good book can make a great difference!”  
From their site: “The highest demand is for classic literature, popular fiction, political & historical books, dictionaries, and ‘learn to’ books (draw, write, etc.) While we appreciate everything, we cannot currently donate old textbooks, hard cover self help books, anything staple bound or coil bound.”
