The small Willamette Valley town of Jefferson, Oregon, has learned that their 150-year-old library building can no longer be used. They’re working like crazy to build a new library, keeping the town and its people supplied with books, information and services.
Librarian Linda Baker is reaching out to authors seeking support through autographed copies of their work. They’re also taking direct donations, and I imagine other forms of support as well. Though cancer is eating my wallet faster than I can replenish it, I’ll at least be sending them some of my books.
Banned Books Week seems like a terrific time to help keep a small town library going. Whether you’re an author, a reader, or just an interested human being, surf on over to the Jefferson Library Blogspot page to see how you might help.
