While we’re always looking for more books and get requests for pretty much everything under the sun, we do get requests for some subject areas that rarely get donated. We currently only have the capacity to those hard to fill genres, due to lack of space. These currently include books about:
Drawing, beading, painting, macrome, knitting and other craft how-to-books
Paganism, wicca, alternative spirituality, occult, and esoteric non-fiction
Astronomy and Astrology
Humor and Comics
Skills and trades (e.g. carpentry, plumbing, electricity, sustainable building/woodworking, etc.)
Queer Fiction, Theory and discourse(Gay, Lesbian, Trans*gender, Polyamory, etc.)
(No Spanish/English at this time) Dictionaries, thesauruses, atlases, and general info almanacs
Political Theory and Radical Non-Fiction
“Alternative” history (Howard Zinn, Lies My Teacher Told Me, Indigenous/Black/Non-Dominant Narratives)
Books in Languages other than English and Spanish (Fiction, Non-fiction, Learning Languages, Sign Language)
Current Text Books
Volunteers! We can always use more hands on support. Send us an email if you’d like to get involved.
And we’re also always on the look-out for rolls of packing tape, brown paper grocery bags, and thin-tip (or any kind of) Sharpies.
Let us know if you’d like to contribute any books in these, or other, subject areas or any packing/shipping supplies. Thanks!
