Librarian donates 1,881 books to NJ library
One librarian had a lifetime collection of books reflecting African-American life and culture. Another librarian was in charge of a secure, temperature-controlled archive room in a city that values diversity highly.
Once the two met and began talking, the outcome was clear.
"I'm just happy they found a home," Barbara Polk Riley said as she formally signed over the 1,881 volumes Wednesday to the Plainfield Public Library.
