Books, Books, and More Books!
Many thanks to Cistercian Preparatory School in Irving, TX that donated 475 books to Abby's Book Corner in March. Since the publication of Abby's Story in The Dallas Morning News, many wonderful people have continued to donate books to the library. We are also extremely thankful for former First Lady, Mrs. Laura Bush, who donated her book, Read All About It! as well as her daughter Jenna's book, Ana's Story. At last count, we are close to 2,200 books collected since November!
Medical City is in the process of renovating the room that is to become Abby's Book Corner. There will be a sign at the entrance that says, "Abby's Book Corner". We hope to have a formal dedication ceremony later this year. Many of the books are already being put to use and providing comfort or entertainment for the patients of Medical City.
Will and I wish to thank everyone again for helping us make Abby's Book Corner a reality.
