Book Drive to Benefit Louisville Free Public Library

Book Drive

On August 4, heavy rains caused flooding in Louisville, Kentucky and the surrounding areas. The
Louisville Free Public Library’s main branch was hit hard and the damages are estimated at $1 million.

I’m putting to a book drive in effort to help.

How you can help:

Donations of new books, all genres.
Information about monetary donations can be found at

Authors & Publishers:
Donations of both signed and unsigned books. All genres, from children’s books to romance to non-fiction, etc, etc.
Signed books can be used in fundraiser purposes. Unsigned books can be used to help replenish the books that were lost due to the flood.

I have spoken with somebody with the library and at this time, they have no place to store books. However, I’m close and I will keep the books at my house until they are able to take them.

For those wishing to donate books, there are two ways you can send them. I can either receive them my post box address or a friend will receive them at her home.
If you wish to mail them via the USPS, send to:

Shiloh Walker
PO Box 976
Jeffersonville, IN

For those wishing to use Fedex or UPS, send to:
LFPL Book Drive
C/O Jennifer Kennedy
20813 State Rd # 62Marysville, IN 47141

  1. I think it's a fantastic idea! Good luck!

  2. Hey Stacy, this is a wonderful thing that you are doing. I actually have some books that I could send. I won't be back home for about a week, but when I get there, I will put some of them together and send them off...

    Peace and love,
    Paula R.
