Friends of the Mill District to Sponsor Book Drive during the June 15th Mill City Farmers Market

Article by Claudia Kittock

For any of us who love to read, our lives have been spent accumulating books, and then we wonder how that happened. Many are books we will never read again, and yet, they sit on our shelves. Friends of the Mill District and YouthLink are hoping to offer a solution.

On Saturday, June 15th, we will be collecting books for YouthLink. We will be outside of the Guthrie on 2nd Street from 8am-1:00pm during the Mill City Farmers Market. The books will all be donated to YouthLink. Being able to pick up a book and read it whenever you want is a luxury many young people don’t have. We hope to be able to fill in a bit of that void with as many books as we can. 

That will only happen with your help. What books are best? Any and all books are best as we all love slightly different types of books at different times in our lives. Please start piling up books that you know you won’t read again and bring them to the Guthrie on June 15th. Nothing could be better than sharing your love for reading!

Please contact Claudia Kittock at with any questions or comments.  Thank you!
