Q & A's:

Q:  Why is this event historic and important?  
A:  For the first in Arizona history, at one location, the public will have access to over 1500 books from a private collection.  Some books are collectibles and out-of-print. Your registration would assist Gift Children Books, Inc. with purchasing new books for children who need them most.  The fundraiser also fills a dire need for more diverse literature in Arizona. 
Q:. Are there any children books? 
A:  All books were written for adults.  
Q:  Are the books in good and very good condition?

Q:  When will registration close?  My friends are avid readers, belong to book clubs, and some are book collectors, may I invite them? 
A:  Registration will close when all books are accounted for or on 11/4.  Yes, please share this event on social media and invite others to register.
