Just a friendly reminder!

The Oregon Student Chapter of the American Library Association is proud to
announce the Liberty Through Literacy Book Drive, which will take place
from April 12 to May 12, 2014. Donors are encouraged to bring books to
collection locations in Portland and Salem. Books will be donated to
libraries at the Marion County Correctional Facility and the Oak Creek
Youth Correctional Facility, to aid in education and employment
opportunities. The right to better oneself through education is a freedom
that belongs to all people, and that education in turn benefits all
people--Your books will help!

A kick-off event and donation drive will be held on April 12, 2014, from
6:30-8:30pm at Huber's Cafe, 411 SW 3rd Ave., Portland, OR, 97204. We
encourage people to come by, drop off books, have a drink, and learn more
about how your donations will help those in need. This is an all-ages and
free event. Food and alcoholic beverages will be available for purchase.

All books are welcome, but the librarians specifically need softcover,
recently published (last 2 years), books about: art, history, journalism,
law/justice system, pre-algebra, algebra, basic math, chemistry,
