Hi, we are so glad you found us!
Now that you are here we assume that you have a few questions such as:
“Who are you?”
“What are you trying to do?”
And of course, “Is Bookshare a real word?”
Land of Lincoln Bookshare is a 501c3 nonprofit based in Springfield, Illinois. It was founded by two best friends with a passion for books who wish to foster the love of reading in their community. Everyone, young or old, rich or poor should have access to books and this is the driving force behind the creation of LOL Bookshare.
To achieve this we take in new and gently used paperbacks or hardbacks and seek opportunities to redistribute these donations throughout Central Illinois. LOL Bookshare provides a place where people can bring their donations knowing that they will be provided free of charge to those who need or want them.
As for the word “bookshare” you caught us, we made it up. Please don’t hold that against us.
If you have more questions you can reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment below.
“What an astonishing thing a book is…one glance at it and you’re inside the mind of another person, maybe somebody dead for thousands of years. Across the millennia, an author is speaking clearly and silently inside your head, directly to you. Writing is perhaps the greatest of human inventions, binding together people who never knew each other, citizens of distant epochs. Books break the shackles of time. A book is proof that humans are capable of working magic.”
