So, the dust is settling on the flurry of activities that took place in May and June centering on the book sale.
As you know, we lost our lease with the Children's Museum Building and needed to move out. The thought of finding another space was daunting, having gone though this just a few years ago as we had to leave Jackson School. It took us over a year to find another space. This time, though, the fates were on our side.
Delta Dental is building a huge new building just East of 51. Their old building on Hoover will be taken over by Inclusa. Inclusa is offering space to a few non-profit groups, and we were lucky enough to be one.
This is scheduled to happen in the Spring of 2022 if all goes well.
We could only store some of the books we had. We've rented a storage space and have books stored in more than a few members' store rooms, garages, and basements. We had to sell off what we could, and pass along the rest to Goodwill and other thrift stores. We had surprisingly good sales, and actually came out ahead on the cost of the move.
As usual, all hail to the members of the Book Committee and all the volunteers who worked the sale, hauled books around, or helped in a myriad of ways. I won't attempt to list them here, since I'm sure to leave someone out, so please accept our heartfelt thank you for what you've done.
All that said,
WE CAN'T ACCEPT ANY DONATIONS UNTIL THE MOVE IS COMPLETED NEXT SPRING!
No room, no room.
It hurts to say this, but there's just NO ROOM.
