A donation of books arrived today - a large and fine selection of paperbacks including novels by Agatha Christie, John Updike, James Baldwin and Patricia Highsmith; such a vast variety of authors in fact that already we guarantee everyone will find the perfect evening read.
This donation is the very kind and generous gift of David Thigpen (via our dear friend Arnie who filled his car and drove them to us - a big thank you Arnie!) and we are immensely grateful. Some of the books will go into the free-to-take section and some into the lending section. Our doors open at 10am on Saturday March 3rd and we would love to see you - and to give you an excellent cup of coffee and a seriously good cookie.

A word about 'here':
We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Lenape, original people of the mid-Atlantic area, forced west by British and US governments. Most Delaware Indian tribe descendants are now located in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Lenni Lenapes in Pennsylvania are not officially recognized as tribes by the United States, though an estimated 5000 Lenape Nation descendants live in the Delaware River area. We pay respects to the Lenape people both past and present. Please consider the many legacies of violence, displacement and settlement that form part of our collective histories. While increased public recognition of these legacies and processes of redress such as Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission are positive steps, concrete focus on return of land and land rights remains a distant horizon.
