The Blackstone Valley Art Association is sponsoring a Books and More drive! It’s more than just a book drive. We are building a Resource Library for Open Sky and are seeking books, CDs, DVDs, games, cameras, binoculars, telescopes, and other lendable items!
The BVAA works closely with the Open Sky organization, which provides wonderful services to individuals with challenges. The Uxbridge Art Gallery space is used during weekdays by Open Sky for career services. Open Sky kindly allows the BVAA to use the space on evenings and weekends.
The BVAA is hosting this drive to benefit the individuals served by Open Sky!
Saturdays from 10am to 3pm (i.e. standard BVAA gallery hours)
BVAA Open Sky Uxbridge Community Gallery
5 South Main Street
Uxbridge, MA 01569
There is a TON of free parking immediately next to this building. It is fully and easily handicapped accessible.
What Types of Books?
Open Sky is assembling a lending library for their individuals served and staff members. They are looking for ALL types of fiction books – mystery, romance, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, you name it. The books should be in good condition, so that they can be enjoyed by the readers.
Please contact us first for non-fiction book topics. We are interested in books on cooking, birdwatching, hiking trails, biking trails, and types of plants. We’re also interested in books in French or Creole.
What Else Can Be Donated?
We are building a resources library. So in addition to books, we are looking for CDs, DVDs, games, binoculars, telescopes, cameras, and any fun things which could be lent out. We currently do NOT want puzzles because it would be onerous to make sure all the pieces are there.
Because this facility works with individuals who might have medical conditions, please wear a mask when you bring in your books and other items.
BVAA Is a Non-Profit
You should be able to list your donations on your taxes as a donation to a non-profit, as the BVAA is a registered non-profit organization.
