The event is in Williamsburg on June 19th, but if anyone wants to donate books beforehand because they can’t make the event (or are moving, etc.), I’m allowing drop-off at my place in Greenpoint – I’ll haul them all up to Public Assembly the day of. Anyone who wants to do early donations, has questions, wants to donate a raffle prize etc. can email me firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re able to come swap the day of, great! If you’d like to donate your gently used books without swapping, we’re looking for donations prior to/day of the event. Please email if you have books you would like to donate.
Also, if you know a business who wants to donate a raffle prize or books please let us know!
