CRESCENDO Paperback Virtual Signing
Becca is doing a Virtual Signing to benefit a library near us in northeastern Pennsylvania - the West Pittston Public Library. Back in September a few short weeks after our area was hit by the effects of Hurricane Irene, we received (more) large amounts of rain resulting in parts of the Susquehanna River overflowing it's banks. The town of West Pittston was hit particularly hard, especially the library! These pictures from the library's Facebook page tell most of the story, as book lovers they break your heart!
|Children's Room - almost nothing remains|
|Juvenile Fiction Area|
|A Young Adult Area|
|Books & Other Items Destroyed by flood waters|
|Another pile of destroyed items|
|So sad to see the damage/devastation|
The community has really rallied to help the library and they have set up a temporary location in a vacant store front not far from their Library building. They are accepting monetary donations to help them get back on their feet.
We are grateful to Becca and Simon & Schuster for the virtual signing they are doing to raise funds for the library. (Check it out here.) For more info on the library or to donate visit the West Pittston Public Library website.
