Retired nurse collecting books for local elementary school students

Hampden County

Robin Patterson lives at the East Village Place Retirement Community in East Longmeadow. She’s urging book donors to drop off children’s book’s from now until December 19.

She’ll then donate the generous gifts to East Longmeadow’s elementary school libraries.

“So many children don’t have books to enjoy, and to have people read them,” Patterson told 22News. “We need donations for them.”

Patterson encourages people to drop off books on Tuesday, December 4.

East Village Place has an open house that day from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon.
