Celebrate Earth Day any day by donating eReaders to ATLA
04/18/2014 - 04/22/2015
The Anderson Township Library Association is seeking donations of used ? but still functioning ? Nooks, Kindles, iPads and other electronic reading devices.
Donations will be raffled off at future sales with the proceeds from the raffles going towards programs and resources at the Anderson and Mt. Washington branches of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
While donations of items, such as books, CDs and DVDs, can be left in the drop boxes at either branch, individuals wishing to donate electronic devices should give them to a librarian at the circulation desk. Donors will then receive a tax donation receipt.
Thanks to the support of the Anderson and Mt. Washington community, ATLA raised $11,600 at its annual Holiday Used Book Sale in November last year and $40,000 at the sale held at Nagel Middle School in June. For more information about ATLA or making donations, call 513-369-6030. Visit www.cincinnatilibrary.org/support/atla.html.
