Anita, The Girl Who Donated 15 Books. By Zainab, Year 11
Zainab, Year 11, reports on one student's generous donation of books to our library.
An innovative and thoughtful Year 7 named Anita (pictured below) has done the charitable act of donating a series of 15 books to the local HAB library, where she hopes other HAB students will “really enjoy them”.
This remarkable act of selflessness showcases the HAB values and goals a fellow HAB student ought to achieve, whereby her selflessness has allowed present students, as well as future students, to have the opportunity of reading the Dork Diaries series she has given, as well as other fun and youthful books of interest.
Books in general are a source of pleasure, entertainment and enrichment for all ages which should be experienced by all. They have the power to open and expand our opinions and experiences, transporting you beyond that of your imagination but instead to glimpse into another.
All books have different and important messages that may well follow us for the rest of our lives. So not only is Anita’s act generous and charitable, it is also monumental since the books she has delivered may just in fact expand your mind and teach or expose you to things you may not have experienced or learnt before.
Love and care for your community
This act of giving books to the library or, in fact, to anyone is necessary as it shows the love and care you have for your community, because not only are you thinking of helping others, you are actively making a huge difference in someone else’s life from a simple act.
Therefore I feel so passionately towards the greatness of Anita’s act as she turned a collection of books that she “won’t read again” into an opportunity of inviting someone else into the story of a book that interested her and can now interest another person.
All in all, it would be great for us all to attempt to donate any book to the library so you can play your part in influencing another person’s life for the better. No act of charity and selflessness is too small if it enriches the mind, souls and hearts of another.
Zainab, Year 11
