Scarsdale Library Collecting Books For Sandy Victims

The Scarsdale Library is collecting children's books for Hurricane Sandy victims from today, Nov. 17 through Tuesday, Nov. 20.

For those looking to help out the youngest of Hurricane Sandy's victims, head to the Scarsdale Public Library.

The library, starting today, will be accepting new and gently used children's books to donate to Literacy in Motion. The organization is creating "pop-up libraries in the emergency shelters and food pantries serving Sandy victims," according to a library announcement.

Big-hearted book lovers can head to the Scarsdale Library between Saturday, November 17 and Tuesday November 20 to drop off the donations. The kids' books can be dropped off in the library's lobby until 9:00 p.m.

"These efforts will go a long way to restoring a sense of normalcy and improving the quality-of-life of those that are shelter-bound for the foreseeable future," the announcement states.
