Did You Know?
We have industrialist Andrew Carnegie to thank for promoting the availability of books to all citizens.

Today, the US has more than 9,000 public libraries. While Carnegie didn't build the first public library (Boston did, in1854), in his final years Carnegie used his private wealth for the common good. He died in 1911 and by 1920 he and his estate were responsible for the creation of 1,700 libraries.

June has been an awesome month!

It began with a trip out east. En route, I visited and was inspired by Oberlin College. Check out the blog posts:
Oberlin Trip.

In NY, we formalized a deal with Eco Zone Media to support their Green My Schools campaign. Also, in the Big Apple, I spent a few minutes in Rockefeller Center for an interview on NBC's "Today in New York."

Additonally, Green Sugar Press titles have been chosen by Operation Storytime (a program sponsored by Target) for their books to be given to at-risk, inner city kids.

And while I'll never be a movie star gawker, I met Daryl Hannah and fell in love......DH Loves Life
