Montessori School Has Book Drive Following Fire
A Horsham school that lost its library in an August fire has launched a book drive.
Montessori Children’s House Principal Nona Melnick says they have a second campus in Blue Bell, but she does not believe they will need to borrow books from there.
“The community has been amazing and we have gotten quite a few books already, so we’re going to start with what we have and I’m sure we’ll get enough books to start a new library.”
Melnick says books and checks can be dropped off at the school on Upland Drive in the daytime or the Day’s Inn on Easton Road in Horsham 24 hours a day.
The fire was set in an outdoor storage shed and it spread to the library. The fire marshal said it was arson and it remains under investigation.
