Melissa McGinnis is at one of her favorite places of all time. She's at a bookstore specializing in travel books. She speaks to her friend, Natalie Compaño, who's the owner of the bookstore.

This is such a fun bookstore here— there are so many great and fun events. They also have something special coming up this Saturday.

Bring in your used books at Traveler's Bookcase on Saturday and they're going to donate them to the Los Angeles Public Library. The books are going to be sold for all kinds of amazing programs at the library desk downtown. It is really important that libraries support bookstores, bookstores support libraries...anybody who loves books.

Absolutely. Recycle your knowledge, recycle your books. Any kinds of books: children's books, guide books, novels, anything.

Why are books important? Natalie thinks the way people learn and enjoy and retain knowledge is with a tactile object. So many people are visual that when they remember a favorite story or a favorite moment, they can actually picture that page, that picture, the feel of the paper, the font— it's a piece of art. Books are a piece of art and they're never going away. They're always going to be amazing gifts and amazing friends. They are so great to share and reuse.

Come to the Traveler's Bookcase event on Saturday. They're going to be serving drinks and Melissa and Natalie will be there hanging out. It's going to be tons of fun.

Greenopolis TV and Traveler's Bookcase welcomes everyone in supporting and donating to the LA Public Library.
