Brainard Collection of Philippine Fil-Am Books at Jackson TN Library

 l-r: Dr. Sandra Dee, Perry Burrows, Cecilia Brainard

I donated some Filipino/Fil-Am books to the Jackson, TN Library and here's what the President of the Friends of the Library Perry Burrows said.
"Thank you so much for your contributions; I'm asking the librarian to set them aside as the "Brainard Collection" to give the Filipino American community time enough to view the works.
Perry Burrows"
Please check out the books! Jackson, TN Main Library is at 433 East Lafayette Street, Jackson, TN 38301, tel: 731-425-8600.
Here's an addendum: in fact, I had sent a 33 lb-box of books to Jackson that unfortunately lost all the books. The box arrived empty!  We had to contact the post office to let them know that if they find Philippine-related books between California and Jackson, TN, they should be sent to Perry Burrows.

I was very sad over the loss of the books - around 20-25 of them, some rare first editions.  But, pulling myself together I gathered more books and sent them on the Perry Burrows. 

We are still hoping the lost books surface.
