    Hello- My name is Lisa Matthews and I am the Special Projects Coordinator for the Robeson County Public Library System. We would love to continue to offer the patrons of our rural community fun and exciting reading materials, but due to recent budget constraints that is almost impossible.. Our community is the third poorest county in the United States making us the poorest in North Carolina. And with these tough economic times the patrons of our area are the ones who are suffering. Your books would be perfect for our collection giving the patrons something to look forward to when entering our doors. Would you ever consider donating any of your titles to help us? Any amount would help and greatly be appreciated.. If I have contacted your company before disregard this email. Thank you for your time, consideration and the devotion to our patrons, Lisa Matthews,RCPL101 N Chestnut StreetLumberton, North Carolina28358 910-738-4859
