beautiful thanks

We received this beautiful card at APBP in August 2017: “I also want to thank personally Corina for finding the transgender workbook I received. It was super helpful and several of my friends have found it educational as well.”

the great recycling

APBP is a serious joy. Interns and volunteers selected books, stopped traffic, and moved 90 boxes of books across a small city​ + campus to be recycled. Katie Vogelpohl, Beth Staley, Corina Scott, and Emilie Shumway, you are superheroes!
