|At the Coffee Cart|
|At the Spinal Cord Unit waiting area|
|In the Community Living Center|
The books were very popular. I took a box to the coffee cart in the basement and started talking with the volunteers there; they offered the use of their supply trolly to move the rest. Here's a picture of two volunteers.
I don't take pictures of patients or staff, because of privacy, but the coffee cart volunteers were o.k. with posing.
There are two main book carts in the building lobbies. While I was stocking one, someone from the Spinal Cord Unit asked if they could have some for their waiting area (there are a great many waiting areas through out the hospitals, in the various clinics). I made a little display on the table there.
I then went on the the Community Living Center, where they have shelves.
When I returned, I saw lots of people carrying books. One patient in a wheelchair had four in his lap; he seemed very pleased. As one of the guys at the coffee cart said, they get more than 5,000 people a day going through the building, and many of them would like a little reading material for while they are waiting.
I stopped by Half-Priced on the way home to show them these pictures. They did a good thing and were happy to see the result. Everyone wins!
