Catherine Veronis and Nina Edward organized a book fair at Western Middle School for their Greenwich High School senior project.
The event took place on Thursday and will continue until Friday, June 1.
“We are super grateful for all donations,” said Catherine.
After placing bins at drop off locations around town, the girls collected hundreds of books, filling multiple shelves in the Western Middle School library.
“Teachers have been bringing their classes down to browse and hopefully find some great books to read over the summer,” said Katie Yu, the Western Middle School PTA co-president who worked with the girls.
Charging $1 for paperback and $2 for hardcover books, students had the opportunity to buy plenty of books to kick-start their summer reading. The proceeds will go towards the Western Middle School PTA and leftover books will be donated to the Byram Shubert Library.
