Last fall Hurricane Sandy caused widespread destruction throughout New York. We were devastated to learn that the library at Bellevue Hospital, run by the extraordinary organization, Reach Out and Read, was destroyed due to flooding.
To facilitate the restoration of this library, LitWorld introduced two of its most cherished partners, Reach Out and Read at Bellevue Hospital, and The Pearson Foundation's We Give Books. Through our partnership with these organizations we are replacing the 7,000 books lost during Hurricane Sandy.
On Wednesday, April 10, We Give Books will be bringing an exciting ReadMobile Event to Bellevue Hospital. The LitWorld team will be on site reading aloud with the children at Bellevue Hospital and sharing information about our work and our longstanding partnerships with these two great organizations.
