Port Arthur Book Drive

The Friends of the Wells Branch Community Library are helping the Port Arthur (TX) Public Library rebuild its collection after a total loss due to Hurricane Harvey. So far, we’ve collected a storage locker full of books and materials. Thank you, Wells Branch!

Donations of books, CDs and DVDs will be accepted pursuant to the Port Arthur Library Collection Development Policy

We are not currently holding book donation collections due to the full storeroom.  We plan to truck the collection to Port Arthur sometime in the Fall when they say they are ready.  If you have more books to donate and wish to hold them yourself until we announce our delivery date, we would be happy to fit them on the truck at that time.  We have had donations from all over Austin and surrounding areas.  A huge THANK YOU to all involved!
