Spring is in the air (in some parts of the world…), and that can only mean one thing: It’s time for Accio Books!Over the years, our annual book drive has built libraries in Rwanda, the Mississippi Delta, and New York City. Members like you have collectively donated over 100,000 books. This year, we are thrilled to announce that our primary donation recipient will be the Brightmoor Community Center in Detroit, Michigan. All of the books collected during the drive will be catalogued by our University of Michigan chapter, The Whomping Wolverines, and in September they will be given away for free to members of the Brightmoor community during an appearance of our Apparating Library at Brightmoor’s annual Back To School Rally.You also have the option to donate locally or join up with your local chapter to see where they’re donating this year. No matter how or where you donate books, be sure to log them for points in our annual House Cup.

Will Ravenclaw win again? Will we beat our record of 30,000 book donations from last year? Will Tom Hiddleston hear about our campaign and personally donate one thousand books? 
THE GAME, DEAR WIZARDS, IS ON!



Hey nerds! Have some books lying around that could use a better home? Want to get together with other nerdfighters and make a positive impact on your community? Wanna be real cool?
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, why not collect books to donate either locally or to the HPA’s Apparating Library in Detroit?
More info will be coming shortly on how nerdfighters can join magical forces with the HPA for good during this drive, but for now, get talking in your local nerdfighter groups and brainstorm up some ways that you can work together to collect books to donate, either as a collective, or as part of an HPA chapter, if there’s one near you.
Hooray!

You know you’ve got a bunch of books that you’re not going to read again…books that someone else would REALLY ENJOY reading…maybe someone who otherwise couldn’t get their hands on books. SO! As the infographic says…PUT YOUR JUNK IN THAT BOX!!!

Any soldier with a dog probably looks forward to his or her own reunion. Sadly, Brandon Harker came home from Afghanistan only to find that his dog, Oakley, who had been entrusted in the care of Harkers friend, had been given away while Harker was deployed.

 Harker says when he returned earlier this month, his “friend” told him he’d gotten rid of Oakley, and doesn’t know who has the dog now. Oakley was either sold or given away in Lakewood, Wash, apparently during May, but it could have happened anytime from February till June, and
numerous people have contacted Harker saying they saw Oakley for sale on craiglist back in Feburary.


​Oakley is a 2-year-old yellow Lab, with a distinct coat that features unusual spots. He is described as good with kids and other dogs. He has a unique coat, on his face he has spots of a darker yellow (champagne) he also has spots of the same color going down his sides and legs. He is micro-chipped and registered to Harker.

If anyone has any information on Oakley, contact Harker via his craigstlist ad, or reblog this post to help signal boost.

 

Reblogging for the boost!
