The library is sponsoring a Toys for Tots Drive, in conjunction with Assemblyman Ed Ra’s office. The donated toys would benefit the Child Life program at NYU Langone Hospital, as well as the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, which supports children who are ill as well as underprivileged families. Both of these organizations rely on the generosity of others to be able to provide children with toys throughout the entire year. We ask for only new, unwrapped toys and we thank you for your generosity.
