Message from Roy Austin

If you feel moved to help Libraries For Kids, Int’l, here is what we need besides money:

Speaking: We are available to speak to civic clubs, churches, men’s clubs, women’s clubs, etc. And I’m willing to travel to spread the word.

Celebrity Spokesperson: If you know someone or can connect us to a celebrity that would be a huge benefit

Partners: Our partners provide free services and in return, we put them on our website and feature them in our monthly e-newsletter. We are always looking for new partners

Shelves: Right now we need shelving for our storage space so if you are doing a remodeling job and taking out old shelves or bookcases please let me know.

Corporate Sponsor: While we have learned how to minimize the cost of shipping books, it is still expensive. We are investigating the possibility of shipping a container of books so having a corporate sponsor for this project would be a great help.


Books: Here is a list of the type of books the schools have requested and some general guidelines:

Cost/Benefit: It’s expensive to ship books so while some books may be of interest, we want to ship books that would the greatest probability of being beneficial. This is a judgement call. Any books we receive that we deem of minimal benefit will be donated to Goodwill.
