"From the time I found myself at home in that little segregated library in the South, all the way up until I walked up the steps of the New York City library, I always felt, in any town, if I can get to a library, I’ll be okay. It really helped me as a child, and that never left me. So I have a special place for every library, in my heart of hearts.” - Maya Angelou
Our annual Accio Books campaign is founded in the belief that libraries are places of unique magic, safety, and growth. We have built libraries with your help. And we can do it again.
The 2014 campaign is approaching its conclusion. It’s time for a final push. If you have books lying around, or friends with books lying around, or a cardboard box and some resolve - if you have ever known the comfort of a library - please consider donating. Your donations will help us build an apparating library in Michigan’s Brightmoor community.
