High Interest Low Level readers for adult learners who read at or below a 3rd grade level (Click on a name to go to Grass Roots Press Website to learn more about each biography.):  



​We are also looking for new or used copies of large print books (novels, biographies, and other popular books) for our readers who have impaired vision. 


In general, we accept most donations of books that are in good condition. Books that we do not add to our library will be placed on our "Free Books" table so that students, tutors, and community members can take them.


We cannot accept moldy books, books with pages torn out, or books that smell heavily of smoke. We do not accept large sets of encyclopias, as we do not have sufficient space for them.
