Previous:

Velocity of Books was a community service project, which received non-profit status in 2015.  As a result, all prior activity was not placed in an official log.

 We will be working on typing in prior book donations and distributions.  Thankfully, the schedule of book collections and distributions was kept on our appointment calendars.  It is now a matter of going over prior records and populating the content.
