Guys. It’s official. Antelope Lending Library and Iowa Youth Writing Project have bought a bookmobile! And it is currently parked in my driveway.
We are at a very different place now than we thought we would be when we started fundraising back in November, but we could not possibly be happier. While we’re still a ways off from rolling into action, we are a lot closer than we were. The crazy idea of a small, non-profit library would have remained just that—an idea—without The James Gang teaching us about what it means to be a non-profit and helping us become one, the bookmobile Defunct Books sold to us at an incredibly reasonable price, our enthusiastic volunteers whose help we will continue to rely on, and all of our wonderful supporters sending us books and donations from across North America. We are incredibly lucky to have so much support.
Here’s to a busy, book-filled summer!
