Alaskan booksellers at Parnassus Books and Hearthside Books nominate Craig Public Library to receive 2012 Michael Pritikin Rural Library Project.
More than 30 boxes of new books were collected on Sunday, Oct. 14 and Monday, Oct. 15 in Tacoma, Wash. during the 2012 Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Fall Trade Show to be donated to Craig Public Library as part of the Michael Pritikin Rural Library Project. The books, with a retail value of approximately $15,000, are being shipped to the library at no cost by Partners West Books Distributors.
PNBA has been collecting book donations from publishers during their trade shows since 1992 for donation to a rural library nominated by member bookstores. For more information about the history of the award please visit http://pnba.org/RuralLibrary.htm.
