In the summer of 2017, Chicago-land was hit with some severe flooding. In one of the northern suburbs (Round Lake, IL), W.J. Murphy Elementary School was flooded and most of the books in their library were lost. In order to help, St. Peter's youth group organized a book drive to collect books for the school. Here are some pictures from the final day of sorting. Almost 400 books were collected in all.
