WOW!! what a wonderful idea. I would like to find out how I can get access to the free books. It is such a nice idea and I would like to find out how often this is done and try to find a way to volunteer myself sometime.
Please let me know where I can get access to these free books. I love to read.

For more about the local World Book Night effort, contact the McMinnville Public Library (which is open Sunday afternoon, but closed Monday) or Third Street Books. When I last spoke with Sylla at the book store, she still had a few slots left for volunteer book givers.

What a wonderful, positive activity. Great to know there are people doing good things like this in our community.
I love books more than just about anything else in the world. It's hard to fathom that some people go through life without 'em.
