This Week is National Library Week

Did you know that this week is National Library Week?

It's time to think about all those books you have. Have they started to take over your house? I know mine have. They have a way of creeping into our homes, maybe while we're sleeping, and before we can say, "National Library Week", they have multiplied.

This might be a good week to look at your collection and see if there are any books that you could part with. Perhaps a book you received just didn't live up to its reputation. Or maybe you read it so long ago with no plans of a reunion. If it went to live at someone else's house that would be fine with you.

Maybe the books you love and cherish would like a bit more breathing room on their shelves. This could be the perfect week to give them that.

Most libraries have donation programs. Get a sturdy box, not too big and walk through your house. Can you fine a dozen books or so that might live happily ever after in someone else's home?

How about magazines you've already read? Or magazines you've been hanging on to for so long you can't remember why. Libraries love these and recycle them to other patrons.

Here's my challenge to you-Do you love reading and books enough to set them free and release them to the universe so others can enjoy them?

Be bold. Be brave. Be strong.

I've got my box ready. I'm gearing up for a Farewell Party this weekend and sending some books along the way. Let me know at if you were able to do the same.

Until next time.
