It Was Just Like “Storage Wars”…

…except she didn’t have to saw the lock off.
There I was at the U-Haul storage facility, when Jackie lifted the tambour door, and my eyes took in all she had to offer.
Boxes and boxes of books- lovely, pristine books, classic titles, new reads, old favorites.
In the span of an hour or so, I loaded all of these valuable books into my car. As I drove away, I kept thinking, “What a jackpot!”.
Now, weeks later, some of picture books are en route to Ghana and Uganda. Others are earmarked for Zambia, as well as our local students in Crystal Lake and McHenry.
Thank you, Jackie!
