Glad to see this emphasis on books. I live in Blue Bell, Pennsylvania. Visited Cody for the first time this past June. My and wife fell in love with the town. I am retired writer and journalist. She is a physician with the University of Pennsylvania Health System. We have many books we would be glad to donate to the library.
