Book Drive America

Jen_B writes and Good Morning America are touting a new program with Laura Bush to help get books to libraries.

“First lady Laura Bush will help Good Morning America kick off the book drive today. Mrs. Bush will talk about the great need for books in our nation’s schools from GMA’s Times Square studio.

For the national campaign, GMA will be teaming up with First Book, a national nonprofit organization that gives children in need the opportunity to own and read their first new books.”

What they don’t mention is how libraries which have shut down due to budget cuts are supposed to get those books to patrons when they still don’t have money for staff.”
