Distribution to Underserved Communities Library Program

We just learned a few months ago about The Distribution to Underserved Communities Library Program (DUCS). This is a great organization! What they do is collect books from nonprofit publishing houses, package them up, and donate them to underserved libraries in inner cities, schools, alternative reading centers, etc. They do this at no cost to the recipients.

We just donated a carton of Plays and Playwrights 2001 (which is going to be out of print by the end of the year). DUCS picked up the shipping charges. NYTE has been able to provide needed materials to underserved groups. Our mission to get our plays out to a wide, broad, and diverse audience is served. And of course the people who will get to read our book and countless others provided to them thanks to DUCS will hopefully be enriched and rewarded by the experience. So it's a win-win-win situation!

Check out the DUCS website to learn more about what they do. We'll certainly make another donation to them in 2010.
