From 2013 to 2018, Books to Prisoners filled orders out of a basement work space we rented from the University Christian Church at NE 50th St and 15th Ave NE.
This has been our only venue so far to provide live music to work by. On Tuesday nights, the Seattle Choral Company rehearsed down the hall. Thursday nights, we listened to jazz musicians from the Boeing Employees Concert Band.
During that time, we had lots of volunteers from the University of Washington. We also came to count on the support of Pluto and Juno, the cats who lived with the custodian in his on-site apartment.
Pluto enjoyed throwing himself into the work.
Juno preferred to offer quiet solidarity from down the hall.
