- Lots of best sellers in your life? Do you (or any of your friends) tend to BUY lots of best sellers for book groups or solo reading? The ACL can usually use anything that’s very current: as a rule of thumb, if it’s making the rounds in your book group, it’s probably on the next group’s list as well! Why not consider donating any freshly-read books to the ACL for our lending library? Just bring them by the circulation desk anytime we’re open and we’ll graciously accept your cast-offs.
Each holiday season, we receive queries from our patrons about charitable giving to the ACL—people love to show their ACL love this time of year! Of course, the answer is a resounding “yes”—we happily accept donations. We have our 501(c)3 non-profit designation and donations to the ACL are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

Book Event: Vodka Shot, Pickle Chaser Newton Alderman and Author David Kalis Tuesday, June 17th at 7:30 pm
The situation in Russia and Ukraine is dangerous and evolving, but in many ways is a result of the collapse of the Soviet Union. Having lived in the USSR for 3 years during its dissolution, and witnessing first-hand the chaos of the mafia, corruption, and uncertainty, Author David A. Kalis has a unique perspective on the current conflict, and fantastic stories to share of his time in Russia. His memoir is told from the perspective of a recent college graduate, so provides insights for young adults trying to find a direction, while his search for his roots in Ukraine and the unraveling of the Soviet Union will appeal to all adults. Vodka Shot, Pickle Chaser is his coming-of-age memoir in which David finds that the road less traveled can lead to unexpected adventure, and that looking backward sometimes provides the best insight into how to move forward. Kirkus Review is available here.
In addition to our new hot reads, did you know that the ACL has ever-changing, timely book displays?
