    If the children of shluchim don’t have Jewish books, then certainly other children don’t and the other childrens’ parents probably don’t either. Maybe you should make a library for adults too. Also would be good if you have Jewish DVD’s because a lot of children get exposed to too many secular movies.

    Judging from my own children who have probably over 2000 books in the house and never stop reading, I don’t think you can ever quench the thirst of children for knowledge.

    Maybe that’s why when moshiach will come, all he will do is feed us even more knowledge.

It gets particularly hard to pick out a book after the preschool years. I don’t even know… Read more »

    Books are a gray area when it comes to knowing what the parents will and wont accept for their kids. While some (probably most) will accept Dr. Seuss or Goodnight Moon, there are the few who wont. It definietly gets trickier as the kids get older. The best thing to do is ask what they deem appropriate. If you are uncomfortable asking, see what (if any) books you recognize are in the house and from there you can get an idea of whether or not they read the types of books you read as a kid.

    if you have 2000 books I’m sure you can afford to donate some to the library in the article. This way, everyone’s thirst is quenched just a little.

    I don’t find it so simple for a single girl to go to 1414 to drop off some books. Is there another address?
