This is a message from Vern Preheim, who does volunteer work at Book ReViews.  The store is closed for now but Book ReViews sells on line at ABE books.  Vern goes in every day to process orders and is there from 9 am to 11 am.   People have called asking if they could bring books to donate.  If you wish to donate books,  come to the back door using the alley.  Book ReViews can accept book donations at the back door Tuesday through Thursday,  9 – 11 am.   We need books!
