Orange Box

You’re probably rented movies from Red Box, but...

Orange boxes have sprung up in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The boxes, similar to those for newspapers, have been placed outside libraries that have been closed by the storm.

Due to the overwhelming success of the campaign, donations are no longer being accepted. At over 20,000 books collected, residents may keep the books if they wish.

Urban Librarians United hope these mini-libraries will provide a little diversion and remind residents that they aren’t forgotten as they continue to cope with Sandy’s devastating aftermath.
