We wanted to share this story from News12 about our fund in honor of Magnolia, providing children's
books to branch libraries in the Bronx:
Thanks to generous donations from so many people, the fund has reached $30,000!
Our goal is to reach $35,000, enough to provide 100 new children's books to every
single branch in the Bronx in Magnolia's memory.
Magnolia's love of reading was a developing passion and we were so charmed by it. We were so pleased that she was enjoying books on her own and creating an independent reading life. We mourn not only for our sweet girl, but for her lost future. We are sure it would have included many hours of reading and many beloved books--we are honored that her fund at the NYPL will help other children find hours of enjoyment with books from their local Bronx libraries.
