Another productive month at Big House Books. We sent out over 950 books this month and saw about 40 first-time volunteers!
We were honored to host a number of students from Millsaps College this month. Professor Kristen Golden’s Philosphy of Happiness class joined us at the beginning of the month for three volunteer sessions, where they were able to fill requests, organize our book donations, and pack books to send out. We closed out the month with the guys of the Kappa Alpha and Kappa Sigma fraternities (pictured above), who packed over 250 books at our book packing party!
Thanks to Holly for delivering books to the Walnut Grove Correctional Facility. These books will help stock their prison library, allowing more incarcerated Mississippians to have access to a diverse selection of gently used, up-to-date books for FREE.
