Briarcliff High School freshman, Girl Scout and book lover Caroline Pennacchio has successfully revived a lost village tradition.
for her Silver Award, Pennacchio decided to organize a book sale at the Briarcliff Manor Public Library.
More than 20 BHS and BMS students volunteered their time to set up for and help run the book sale on the weekend of September 7.
“The response was amazing,” said Briarcliff High School Assistant Principal Debora. French in a statement. “We had students filling cars and taking books to the library and earning all their community service hours for the year in one weekend!”
Added Briarcliff Manor Public Library Director Melinda Greenblatt, “Caroline really did a fabulous job of organizing the book drive."
The sale ultimately earned $3,764 which will benefit the library.
The books that were not sold at the sale, "are being donated to community organizations such as Blythedale Hospital and Ossining Children's Center, among others," Greenblatt shared.
