Blue Willow Bookshop's Hurricane Ike Library Rebuild Effort

The following information comes from Blue Willow Bookshop, an independent bookstore in Houston, Texas.

Following the destructive visit of Hurricane Ike, Blue Willow Bookshop is initiating a nationwide campaign to rebuild the library collections of Anahuac High School, Freeport Intermediate School and, closer to home, the Alief Hastings 9th Grade Center. These schools lost more than 75% of their collections. Our goal is to have 1,000 books to deliver to these libraries by December 1. You can help in a number of ways:

  • Come in to the store and purchase books from the schools' wish lists.
  • Stop by or call us with a donation and let us do the shopping for you; or
  • Call us if you have some very gently used current fiction (preferably hardcover) appropriate for grades 5 and up.

If you have any questions, please call the store at (281) 497 8675 or email us.
