On Monday, July 22, Dovid Kanarfogel and Leslie Gang, co-founders of Hindi’s Libraries, paid a visit to the Friedberg JCC in Lynbrook where Hindi’s Libraries donated children’s books to the organization. Kanarfogel read “The Little Engine That Could” to the program’s toddlers. Both cofounders, along with Allison Fixler, program director, and JCC teachers Miss Michelle S., Miss Marisa, Miss Jo, Miss Maryann, and Miss Michelle G. assisted students in a dip-dot and sticker activity. Students also received a Hindi’s Libraries book to take home with them.
Hindi’s Libraries is a nonprofit organization that collects and donates new and gently used children’s books. Books are distributed to children and families throughout the United States. Currently it partners with more than 265 organizations and books are shipped to locations spanning across 45 states. Each book is dedicated to Dr. Hindi Krinsky, a 32-year-old educator who suddenly passed away in August 2018.
