Asheville High School Book Drive

Alex Biggs knows first hand what its like to sit in hospital waiting rooms. His older sister Courtney, who turned 23 this year, has been an oncology patient since she was a baby. They both have been students at North Buncombe High School in Asheville, NC and this year Alex encouraged them to host a book drive for Karl's Books. They collected over 400 books. These books will help other families as they spend hours in the clinic during treatment days. I want to thank this family and their school for their support. Love, Kathy

Book Fairy Flies to School

The Book Fairy visited Rashkis Elementary School this past Friday and read to all the kindergarteners. They in turn collected much needed board books for the clinic. The kids were full of questions. "Are you a real fairy?". "Did you fly here?". And one little boy with a UNC t-shirt on asked if I was the UNC Book Fairy and if I was a Tar-heel. I said of course. Thanks to all of the great kids, their families and the school's staff. Love, Kathy

Thanks to local book drives hosted by UNC Libraries, home schoolers and private individuals Karl's Books is stocked up for now. So, please no more book deliveries. What we still need are new preschool board books and Spanish books. So, either collect these or host fund raisers and mail the check to the hospital and I will be glad to buy the books I know the kids enjoy.

Thanks for your interest and participation. The kids and families continue to enjoy the books.

Love, Kathy
