Sharing Books from Amazing Bookstore

The Amazing Bookstore is still closed, but our intrepid volunteers still find ways to get books into the hands of Juneauites. In April, many FJPL volunteers selected books, puzzles and playing cards to be donated to the Mt. Jumbo Gym, which was used as a place of shelter for adults needing a place to isolate. And if you frequent the Little Libraries around town, you may be benefiting from the work of one of our FJPL backroom volunteers who has been checking Little Libraries around town to stock them with a variety of free books for adults and youth. Getting books and people together is one of the ways members of Juneau’s Friends of the Juneau Public Library continue to serve the public while we wait to return to the new normal.
