Discussion: Book Buying for a Cause
Kel Monday, January 05, 2015 discussion
As great a cause as my future home library is, it's not the most selfless of goals. Shopping for Angel Tree presents this season got me thinking...
I'm not sure about all the logistics, but I have an idea that may put my book buying addiction to better use. I know a lot of teachers maintain class libraries, especially in elementary schools; but they don't always have the funds or time to maintain their collections. My brilliant idea: I want to contact a bunch of teachers in the area early this year, get their classroom library wishlists, and do lots of frugal (but substantial) book buying throughout the year for them.
So, what do you guys think? Has anyone done something similar before? Any tips? Ideas for streamlining and/or improvement? :)
