Rochester Hills students create nonprofit to donate diverse books to public libraries

ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. – A new donation from Girls of the Crescent to the Rochester Hills Public Library added to the diversity of the books available.

“We’re the public’s library,” said Christine Lind Hage, the director of the library. “We have 100,000 people, so our collection serves all of them.”

The library now has new books aimed at teenagers and children highlighting Muslim women as the main characters.
