Title: Contributors, too

Boy and girl, each holding books, at bench outside housing project (Glenwood Houses) at or near 1660 Ralph Avenue; trash can at left; parked bicycles beyond chain link fence in left background. Caption on verso: "Contributors, Too: Some 1,100 of the library's volumes were donated by residents of the project -- young and old alike. Pausing on Glenwood grounds, above, for friendly chatter are David Jurow, 7, and Marsha Goodman, 8, both of 5817 Glenwood Road. They're bringing a few contributions of their own to new reading center."
