I had not mentioned Martin Luther King Day as a January holiday, have I? No.
The 6th District Police Department is hosting a children's book drive for their Martin Luther King service day project this year. Well, Greater Philadelphia residents and/or visitors can help by leaving any new or gently used children's books at
Happily Ever After
1010 Pine Street
(on "Antique Row" between
10th and 11th Streets)
Philadelphia, PA 19107
BEFORE 5 p.m. today, January 18th. You will need to call to confirm that someone is there before you go. (They usually open around 11:00 a.m. Their telephone number is 1-215-627-5790.)
Why am I happy about this?
1. I got an early start on an 2015 Martin Luther King service day project!
2. I left six near-new Smartees career books for some children to enjoy.
3. I reduced my doll stuff!

Here are 3 of the books:
