PC Book Drive Benefits Smith Hill!

April 16, 2017 - 11:55am -- jfuentes

Back in the Fall, Providence College (PC) graduate student Lizzie Kravitz suggested that PC's annual Book Drive should benefit Smith Hill Library. Lizzie, together with Monique Walmsley, a student interested in library work, met Smith Hill Librarian Alan Gunther and Youth Services Specialist Jennifer Romans in order to decide what books would best meet the needs of Smith Hill. They came up with a list of 50 desired books focusing on black characters, in honor of February's Black History Month.
