For the Love of Books!

Here are a few choice pictures of GOBS last week.  A huge thank you is in order for all of the amazing volunteers who sorted and lugged over 7,000 (!) books for our Great OES Book Swap.  Additionally, we had a great group of parent volunteers during the swap who helped our eager readers and book lovers acquire stacks of books for their home libraries.  Thank you so very much!
