Load of books saved for kids

Anonymous Patron writes "One From The Patriot-News, in Pennsylvania, on A tractor-trailer load of children's books that found new life yesterday on the floor of the Lebanon County Christian Ministries warehouse. Until recently the 52,000 books were headed for a shredder at Arnold Logistics, part of 15 million books Arnold destroys every year for publisher Simon & Schuster.

Now most of the books are likely to end up in the homes of Lebanon County children who might not have been able to buy the books."
