Our next book shipment to libraries, museums and other non-profit organizations will be in May, but we will begin accepting your boxed books in February.
If you have Latvian books, but no recipient in mind, we suggest "Otrā elpa" in Riga - an organization modeled on "Goodwill" stores, whereby proceeds from all sales are donated to charities.
If mailing packages directly to our warehouse, please note that the warehouse address is: LASL, 84 Harbor Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07305. We suggest that you also call to notify us, so that we know to look for the parcels. Please ensure that your carrier will deliver by March 4th.
Exchange rate: 45 euro = $50.00 ( $ x ..89 = euro) (February, 2016) The value of the contents of all packages must be designated in EUROs
