Over the past two months, Arlington Public Library locations have been collecting change to contribute toward replacing the children’s book collection at the Wells Memorial Library in Upper Jay, N.Y. The entire picture book collection was lost due to flooding as a result of Hurricane Irene.
The Westover Branch Library staff send thanks to patrons who contributed over $125 in change.
Collections in the library have come to an end, however, there are still ways you can help. See author Kate Messner’s blog for information.
