So this week’s love is slightly shameless, seeing as how I’m a staffer for the HPA (Harry Potter Alliance).
This is the last week of HPA’s annual Accio Books! campaign. The short version of it is that Accio Books! is a book drive. This year we’re being super epic and actually building a library for the Bedford-Stuyvesant New Beginnings Charter School. The school opened in September 2010, but they sadly have no library.
So that’s what we’re doing. People are collecting books of all kinds for a K-5 school library. Non-fiction, fiction, picture books, novels. If you can think of it, these kids need it.
And, yeah, this is the last week to send in books that will count for points here. But that’s still a WHOLE WEEK when you can mail books to the school! Then just make sure you go enter your donations so your points can count for the house of your choice in the house cup competition. I’ve been giving my points to Gryffindor!
