Giving New York City’s Local Libraries a Boost

“The city’s libraries deserve their own special day. At least that’s what philanthropist Cheryl Cohen Effron believes.

Ms. Effron has helped to spearhead “Love a Library,” a day of service to happen on September 22 at library branches across New York, Brooklyn and Queens. The effort will be run by New York Cares, a volunteer organization. Some 250 volunteers will work at 24 of the city’s most underserved branches to encourage membership, educate the neighborhood on library services and boost volunteerism.”
