This has been a crazy busy weekend (but then really, what weekend in my life isn’t crazy busy?) Friday I spent all day at Jones’ school hosting a “book swap” where every child in the school got to take home at least one “new to them” book. Many of the kids in Jones’ school come from comfortably well off families, but there are a lot of kids that are immigrants, children of immigrants, or from one of the local shelters. While I’m sure all the kids appreciate the books, it is awesome to see how excited the kids who may not own more than a few books are when they get to choose and keep a book all for themselves. This is my third year doing it and it’s one of my favorite volunteer activities (plus spending a whole day surrounded by books makes the librarian and book lover in me happy).
