Got books? Donate them to a Houston children's hospital library

Regular readers will recognize "Abby's Book Corner" posts. Abigail "Abby" Kearney was my goddaughter who passed away from meningitis in 2008. Her parents have been working to build a library in her honor in Dallas.

They have been holding book drives for hospitals in Dallas and San Antonio. Now I am heading a Houston book drive benefiting the Children's Memorial Hermann Hospital in the Texas Medical Center.

WHAT WE NEED
New Children’s Book in English or Spanish — For age ranges from infant to young adult. We are also collecting coloring books, crayons, and DVDs.
