City Bar Hosts Children’s Book Drive

The Public Service Committee of the City Bar’s New Lawyers Council is collecting new or gently used books for children ages 12 and under, for donation to the New York State Unified Court System’s “Children’s Centers.” This statewide network of centers provides services for the hundreds of young children who accompany caregivers to court appearances every day. In New York City, there are Centers located throughout the five boroughs, run by Safe Horizon. Books in all languages, particularly English and Spanish, are welcome. Books for donation may be dropped off at the collection station in the lobby of the New York City Bar Association through October 1st. Alternatively, please email Brittney Pescatore to make separate arrangements.
