Many thanks to the Dallas Cheer Readers Book Club for donating over 100 books to Abby's Book Corner. Also, a wonderful surprise from a high school friend. Her daughter collected books, coloring books, art supplies, and other goodies for the library for her birthday! Thank you!

This story made me cry. Abby's Aunt Bernice wrote a beautiful story about Abby's Book Corner for the KMAC Newsletter. We've come a long way since our original goal to collect 300 books in the Fall of 2008. We want to thank everyone that continues to support Abby's Book Corner.

Abby made the newspaper again! Only this time, it wasn't the Dallas newspaper, she decided to make herself known in Seguin, TX. The wonderful 5th grade class at Navarro Intermediate School, led by their teacher, Lisa Barry, collected books for Methodist Children's Hospital of South Texas. The story made the Seguin Gazette.
Abby never had a chance to go to school, but she still made the yearbook! The wonderful work by Lisa and her student's warranted a page in their school yearbook. Way to go!

I love surprises, especially when it comes to unexpected news about Abby's Book Corner! The Editor's note in today's neighborsgo section of The Dallas Morning News has an update on the success of Abby's Book Corner. We have received thousands of books for Abby's Book Corner, the library at Medical City Children's Hospital. Also, with the help of numerous individuals, we have been able to donate books to the existing libraries at children's hospitals in San Antonio, Houston, and Austin. Hospitalized children throughout Texas are benefitting from books donated in memory of Abby. I am so proud!

Wow! I am happy to report that the 5th grade girl scouts at my former elementary school delivered 1,000 books to Abby's Book Corner on Saturday. We are so excited that the girls selected ABC as their service project. I wish that I could report a grand total of books collected since we began; however, I lost count after we passed 10,000 books! Our original goal was 300 books. I am very happy that community groups and individuals continue to supply the hospital library with books in memory of Abby. She would be proud, I am sure. Please be sure to contact us if you wish to hold a book drive. Thanks!
