Black History Month Book Drive

Help Build Our Library's Book Collection!

African-American Literature illuminates the beauty of a rich culture with a narrative of experiences that resonate across place and time.

To ensure it is enjoyed for future generations, Open Door Bookstore is continuing to partner with the Hamilton Hill Arts Center throughout February to help us grow the book collection for our Susan Cunningham Library.

We hope you will  stop by the Open Door Bookstore  (128 Jay St, Schenectady, NY)  to purchase a new book, or make a donation to the Hamilton Hill Arts Center in support of this endeavor.

Don't forget to fill out the shop2gether form during your purchase. The form will also be available at the store.
