LONGMEADOW – Two Longmeadow families took time out of their summer vacation to give back and help local kids love to read. Three children in the Desrosiers family, Meghan, Mary, and Matthew, joined forces with their cousins, Luke and Mac Dunnerville, to prepare over 2,000 books for donation to underserved kids.
“With many hands, it was fast work,” Meghan said. It took about two hours on Aug. 12, she said.
Link to Libraries is a Western Massachusetts-based charity that accepts donations of new books and distributes them to local children and school libraries. Laurie Flynn, president and CEO, said in the 10 years since its inception, Link to Libraries has donated almost 600,000 new books.
