MVOL International Book Share 2018

On June 19, 2018 The United Way of Essex and West Hudson proudly supported the first My Very Own Library International Book Share in Newark, NJ.  Students from South 17th Street School in Newark, NJ generously donated books from their My Very Own Library home libraries to students at Abraham Lincoln School in San Juan, Puerto Rico! Book reviews, and special “book club key” all play an extra special role in this initiative!
