Book drive for rural libraries, 501(c)(3), and the future!

Greetings, Tavern fans. Just a quick update to let you know that, as of last week, we filed our 501(c)(3) application for charitable, not-for-profit status with the IRS. We're excited to transition into the nonprofit world, and we have a ton of plans for both future publishing and community outreach.

One project we're particularly excited about is building and sustaining the poetry collections in rural Oregon libraries as well as the libraries and/or community centers of Oregon’s indigenous peoples. You can help us get these projects rolling by sending us your used or new poetry books, poetry anthologies, and books pertaining to poetry and poetics. No donation is too large or too small. Every book counts! We will acquire these books and redistribute them to rural libraries and indigenous communities. Tavern Books is committed to making great works of poetry available to the reading public.

Feel free to send your book donations to:

Many thanks! Feel free to forward this link to anyone who might take an interest. Cheers, and happy reading!
