A special collection of books will be on display at the Palmerton area library. Friends and family of Kristin Olivia Fromal  donated over 30 children's books to the library to honor the Palmerton native.

Fromal was a parent, educator, and community leader who often used picture books to teach children the power of empathy and kindness. Books filled with messages of compassion and self-confidence will be on display at the library for the entire month.

"November is a time when we focus on kindness and Thanksgiving and we just wanted to put this out there and really celebrate positivity and bring some new books to our community," said programs administrator Rachel DeMicco. 

For special readings of the book collection from Fromal's friends and family, you can visit  the library's Facebook page. There will be a new book read each day in November.
