Don't miss our event this Thursday, from 11-2, at Sisters of the Road. We'll be accepting donations of books for our summer library shifts, and helping establish a small library at Sisters of the Road. Any of our patrons or visitors to Sisters will be invited to choose a good book for winter reading.
We recently learned that Street Books has been awarded an Innovations in Reading Prize by the National Book Foundation. We are thrilled to be chosen. Read more about the award, and the four other winners, and stay tuned to Street Books as we get ready to launch our summer shifts, beginning June 2nd. Thanks again to everyone for your support.
Local documentary filmmaker Travis Shields has been visiting the street library to get some film, and he's hoping to get a short documentary about us edited in time to submit to the NW Film Center. Check out his new blog, which features a photo of me taking a picture of Pamela. I'll let you know if his documentary is selected -- then we can all meet and watch it on the big screen.
Sue took the shift on Saturday at the Park Blocks, and reports that she had no less than eight (!) people waiting for her when she biked up. Many patrons returned books and checked out new ones, and new faces stopped in to see what was going on. Please have a look at Sue's great blog post here, to get a flavor of her day: http://suezalokar.com/adventures/you_cant_always_tell_a_book_by_its_cover_
