Choosing a Book to Donate
For our holiday book drive, we're asking customers to donate books that we will give to a school in the area that has been flooded several times.
One of my co-workers was talking to a man about the book drive, "The school was flooded, and we're trying to help them build up their library. I have some books here, and there are some back here..." she pointed to the shelves behind her, full of dozens of children's books.
"I'd like to donate, I'm just not sure which one," the man with greying hair, wearing a long brown raincoat and brown hat, said.
She pointed to the book closest to her register, "There's this one. They could learn about lightning."
"Sure," the man said, "that's a good idea. They already know about flooding."
