Hurricane Irene Wipes Out Small Town Library's Children's Section

Up in the Adirondack Mountains lay small communities, often of lower income mountain families, who rely on their public library for books for their children. In Upper Jay, NY, the Wells Library lost almost all of its children's section to the extensive flooding caused by Hurricane Irene. They are looking for donations of New Hardcover children's books.

Do you have a children's book favorite? Perhaps consider buying a copy and donating it. You could also donate money, or Amazon.com or Barnes and Noble gift cards. You could look through your children's book shelves and see if there are any books in like new condition you could mail up. Media mail is inexpensive, too.

Please consider donating. For more information, visit here:
