“Since my first year in 1995, the library budget has come directly from our annual Book Fair’s net profits. Without the OCC there would be no Book Fair and throughout the years, the OCC has supplemented the BF profits, giving me (and the Adams’ librarians since 2007) $10,000 yearly to build our high-quality bilingual library collections (probably the best non-translated authentic Spanish collection for children in the DMV).
