Girls in Bay shine!

What did you do after the last good book you read? The Girls-in-Bay Book Club (girls in grades 5-8 and their moms) from the Bay Village Branch Library made a positive difference in the world. The book they read, "A Monster Calls" by Patrick Ness, is about a boy who is visited by a monster each night as he deals with his mother dying of cancer.

After the discussion, all the girls and their moms worked together to make a cozy no-sew blanket and heartfelt cards of encouragement. These were donated to the Cornerstone of Hope, a center for grieving children, teens and adults. Misty Ramos, art therapist from the Cornerstone of Hope expressed much appreciation for the gifts and noted that the blanket will help provide great comfort for kids and teens in the counseling sessions.

Thank you, Girls in Bay, for giving of yourselves and representing your community in such a positive way!
