ISSA Freethought Library Update: A Quick Little "Thank You"

I'll be posting a more in-depth update in the next week or so, but I just had to take a moment this evening to once again thank everyone who has supported the Freethought Library. We officially started lending stuff out at tonight's meeting, and our membership was all over it! With nine books checked out at present, I think it's safe to say the project has been a huge success.

I have been incredibly touched over the course of the last few months by the generosity and enthusiasm of my peers in the larger secular community and within ISSA itself. We've had a steady stream of donations from day one, and the resulting collection is impressive in both its quality and variation. Of course, the most gratifying part of all of this came this evening when I looked on as folks skimmed the various texts and made their selections. The texts clearly piqued the innate curiosity that makes each and every one of our members so extraordinary, and I'm so proud to have played a part in that.

That being said, the Freethought Library is an ongoing project! We will continue to accept books until, well, we can't accommodate any more! ...At which point, I suppose we'll have to get creative, eh? Monetary donations are also much appreciated (click here to donate via Paypal) -- we're actually about $40 over budget on the project at this point, so every little bit helps.

Thanks again, guys!

Much love,
