CHICAGO – Apparel and accessories company Out of Print is collaborating with the American Library Association (ALA) for a National Library Week fundraiser and officially debuting its new Star Wars™ READ® collection.

Through April 14, Out of Print will donate 10% of all merchandise sales to ALA’s Disaster Relief Fund. The donations will support libraries in Puerto Rico as they rebuild following devastation from Hurricane Maria. ALA distributes grants on an on-going basis to libraries of all types recovering from natural disasters, both domestically and internationally.
