The Perfect Gift.

The Perfect Gift.

May 29, 2023

With the holidays coming up, we've been thinking about the perfect gift. The kind that makes you go, "Wow, this is exactly what I wanted!" None of those awkward moments when you're smiling on the outside but secretly wondering, "What am I going to do with this?"

How can we give a gift that truly keeps on giving for years and one that is given out of love, not obligation?

This year, I’m giving a gift of books to the MEA Santa Fe libraries where they will make a meaningful difference in the lives of those seeking wisdom and connection at MEA for years to come.

Parting is such sweet sorrow, and it was difficult to part with some of my books until I realized that I hadn’t used them in years. They were only eye candy on my bookshelves feeding my ego instead of being in a place where they could feed curious minds.

As the Librarian for the Santa Fe libraries, I’m inviting you to consider parting with some of your books that are ready to make a transition into a new chapter of their life where they will be enjoyed and appreciated by curious, lifelong learners for years to come.

We're inviting you to be a part of something special, something fueled by love, not obligation. Your contribution would be a gesture of caring and thoughtfulness, making a real difference in the lives of those soaking up wisdom at MEA.

If you're up for being part of this feel-good initiative, put those books in a box (this is one gift you don’t need to wrap) and ship it via Media Mail to:


MEA
50 Mt Carmel Rd 
Santa Fe NM 87505

Thanks so much for thinking about it. Here's to a holiday season filled with good vibes and great reads!
