Happy new year! Hope that 2015 is shaping up to be shiny & bright for you so far. It was a wonderful year for Street Books, and we want to thank you for your continued support. KOIN 6 television did a nice holiday feature on our program, featuring the inimitable Ben Hodgson, who is now a board member. Check it out if you didn't already see it. The next few months, we'll be busy behind the scenes, sorting books and organizing our library. In February we will partner for our 3rd year with Sisters of the Road, to help celebrate their Validation Day (February 13th, from 11-2). Street Books will provide heart-shaped cookies and blank valentines (the latter made by earnest children, with lots of glitter), so that the diners at Sisters of the Road will be able to write some cards to one another if they like. This is also an opportunity for you to bring books to donate - we'll give them to diners, stock the shelves at Sisters and then keep the rest for our library.
Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months, as we prepare for our 5th (!) summer in operation. We are so grateful for the support we've received from all of you, and wish you well.
