We treasure books at our house. More than gold or clothes or most belongings. Over the years we have developed collections on different themes. DH has a Religious Christianity collection; an England/British collection; etc. etc.
A collection grows from presents of new books; some we buy; some we get from used book sales; or throw aways. etc.
One of my collections was on history. I so wanted to find a good home for them! And I wanted to donate them before Dec. 31st , 2012 to a charity. Mostly I wanted a place where they would care about them as I have done.
I worked all night updating my list, and then placing books into boxes to go to their new home. (I did find a few missing and will look for them)
And this afternoon we drove to meet up with the Director of the Eden Valley Enterprises, who was delighted to receive the books, VHS tapes, etc. She does programs on history and is enthusiastic and knowledgeable.
We are so happy 45 books found a good home. It's a relief.
