TEEN PROGRAMS

Teen Brings Smiles to Cancer Kids “Recently, I came to get a book for my independent reading project for school,” “We’re supposed to pick a book and do a project related to it.” Isha said she chose Wilder Girls by Rory Power.

Conant High School student Isha Patel was just a toddler when she started visiting Schaumburg Library. As a child, she’d come with her mom to get children’s books. Later, she’d visit with friends to work on homework, with a little side trip to Oberweiss for ice cream.

Isha and her family continued using the Library during the pandemic, checking out books online and using Curbside Pick-Up to get them. But her latest visit to the Library was for a very different reason: she wanted to collect books and toys for young cancer patients and needed a spot for her donation box. The Library was happy to help with such a worthy cause.

As an ambassador for Cancer Kids First, Isha came up with the idea in hopes it would bring a smile to the children in hospital cancer wards. “I thought they’d love the toys and also like knowing they’re not alone in the battle,” she said. Volunteering with Cancer Kids First was not a requirement for school or anything else, Isha explained. It was just something she wanted to do to give back. With her donation box at the Library filled with items from generous community members, she was able to deliver toys and books to share with many young patients.
