They call themselves the Book Fairies and they give the gift of reading. Now Mattituck High School and the Community Service Organization have joined the movement, too, by asking for donations of new or gently used books.
They are hoping to gather enough books between March 27 and April 7 to be able to give generous donations to libraries, schools and other institutions in the metropolitan area. The books go to groups like Ronald McDonald houses, hospitals, soup kitchens, shelters and Head Starts among many others.
Drop-off locations are the blue lobby, the high school library and room 212 at Mattituck High School.
