A librarian friend of mine who went to grade school in Newtown, CT has alerted me to a unique way to help the Newtown community. "Newtown has a beautiful library," she says "and has set up a fund, in light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook, called 'Books Heal Hearts'. I hope you'll consider donating to such a worth cause. Peace to you all!". 

>From the C.H. Booth Library website: "Books Heal Hearts" (http://www.chboothlibrary.org/BooksHealHearts.php) is a project set up by the Cyrenius H. Booth Library with donations, both monetary and physical books, given in response to the Sandy Hook School tragedy. Books Heal Hearts is a special project for healing that will make materials available for use in our library, our schools, and throughout our community, wherever there is a need and whatever that need may be. This will be an ongoing effort by the library to meet the immediate and future needs of our community. 

I thought that maybe some on this email list w ould be interested in this project. 

Thank you and Happy Holidays to you all,
