Operation Teen Book Drop - the books were dropped today!

Just in time for Support Teen Literature Day, the 650 books donated by the Young Adult Library Association and readergirlz were dropped off at UPMC Children's Hospital.

These books had an eventful month. They started in Chicago, jumped into some boxes and shipped themselves to Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main-Teen. When they got here, 5 fabulous teen volunteers took them from their cozy boxes and placed donation stickers on all 650 title pages. The volunteers also placed 650 pretty purple bookmarks inside these books. The books then went back home to their boxes. On Tuesday morning, they were loaded into a shipping van and taken to UMPC Children's - their final destination. Soon these books will find their way to patients and patient's families, and their final purpose will be realized: being a welcome escape to members of our community who could certainly use it.
