Dear Tavern fans,
Many heartfelt thanks to those of you who have sent us books for our book drive for rural and tribal Oregon Libraries. To date, we have received over 1,000 books of poetry from poetry lovers of every stripe: book dealers, book collectors, poets, professors, editors, students, novelists, community activists, literacy advocates...and the list goes on.
If you're not familiar with this project, then please read on. Here's the gist:
Please join Tavern Books in building and sustaining the poetry collections in Oregon’s rural and tribal libraries. Paulann Petersen, Oregon’s current Poet Laureate, has made our book drive a priority for her upcoming term as our state’s poet. The libraries benefiting from this program are those who serve communities of 5,000 or fewer. You can support this book drive 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 participating rural and tribal libraries. Tavern Books is committed to making great works of poetry available to the reading public. Thank you for your support.
Feel free to send your book donations to:
