The students contacted Hindi’s Libraries co-founder Leslie Gang and joined the book collection and donation organization for a book labeling and sorting session at the Levi Yitzchak Library in Cedarhurst on Nov. 15.

The student volunteers will be meeting weekly as they aim to assist Hindi’s Libraries efforts by labeling both new and gently used books after reviewing the quality and content of each book received. Hindi’s Libraries has donated 65,000 books to 380 groups, institutions and even medical practices in the 50 states, Israel and Puerto Rico, according to Gang.
