[ARCHIVED] HP Library’s Summer Reading Club Donates to the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas

Way to Go Highland Park Library Summer Readers

This year’s book donation recipient organization for the Highland Park Library’s Summer Reading Club is the Ronald McDonald House of Dallas (RMHD). When children completed their Summer Reading Club reading logs, they picked out a book to donate in their name to the RMHD. On Thursday, September 10, Susan Wedding and Kortney Nelson, staff members from the Highland Park Library, visited the RMHD and delivered over 100 donated books.

RMHD serves as a “home-away-from-home” for families of seriously ill or injured children who are hospitalized or receiving treatment in Dallas area hospitals. With approximately 60,000 square feet, the House offers 52 private bedrooms and six transplant apartments. The RMHD was built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child – not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal, or where they will lay their head at night to rest.

The books donated through the Summer Reading Club will help to grow the RMHD’s on-site library. For more information on RMHD, its mission, news, events, and volunteer opportunities, please visit

Special thanks to the Friends of the Highland Park Library for funding the book donation program again this year.
