How Long Island Students Can Make a Global Impact on Youth Literacy this Holiday Season

Long Island, N.Y., Sep. 20 2021: Long Island-based free book distribution organization Hindi’s Libraries is searching for K-12 students to organize book drives this holiday season.

Hindi’s Libraries is partnering with California based children’s author Lisa Caprelli, creator of Unicorn Jazz, to collect children’s and young adult books which the nonprofit will distribute to various organizations across the globe serving children and families in need. Recipients will include the Aaron Community Cultural Center in Los Angeles, Children’s Hospital of Orange County, and Grangou, an orphanage in Haiti. Students leading book drives with 20 or more donation boxes through November 22nd will receive video spotlights on both the Hindi’s Libraries and Unicorn Jazz social media platforms.

"There’s nothing I love more than watching children and teens take a hold of the reins and spearhead initiatives like this one. Their passion and motivation is inspiring! I am so excited to work with students across the country to help give the gift of literacy this holiday season," said Leslie Gang, Co-Founder of Hindi’s Libraries.

Donations may be mailed or delivered to 286 Willard Drive, Hewlett, N.Y. Both new and gently used children’s and young adult books are greatly appreciated. Students looking to organize a book drive are encouraged to contact Leslie Gang at for more information.
