Last month, Sheila May-Stein, a librarian assigned to Manchester this year, posted a photo on Facebook with a comment that the library had only 40 usable books in its fiction section.
She wrote: “Feeling overwhelmed and despondent when I see pictures of iPad labs and brand-new books and all the other privileges white suburban kids have when I compare it to what the kids at this school have. They are learning every day that they aren’t worth clean, fresh paint and unstained carpets and books that aren’t 65 years old.”
May-Stein’s posting went viral and now over 12,000 books have come flooding in and a renovation of the library has just been completed (with a little help from our own Interior Design Guru Craig McDonald) Truly the Manchester Miracle!
