Smart people love books, and many smart people live, work and play at American Tobacco Historic District. So, the team partnered with Durham County Library to create a one-of-a-kind place to donate and buy books on campus. On Sept. 1, 2009, ATC’s Michael Goodmon joined library volunteer Jane Goodridge to cut the ribbon and open a new chapter in the campus’ story.

“It’s the first such public-private partnership in Durham — a Library book sale put together outside of one of our libraries,” said Goodridge.

Located in a public lobby near Cuban Revolution restaurant, Bull’s Books features cozy places to read and a whimsical ‘donation’ box created by Durham artist Al Frega.

Books are sold on the honor system and priced between $1 and $5. Proceeds go to the Friends of the Durham Library, who in turn fund library programs, equipment and new books.

Thanks to ATC’s Valerie Ward for this capcom story & these capcom photos.
