Kodansha Donates to Queens Libraries
Kodansha USA Publishing donated 200 books to help the Rockaway, Queens libraries rebuild their collections after Hurricane Sandy.
“We, the Kodansha USA Group, are delighted to donate our books to help local libraries recover from the damage suffered during Hurricane Sandy. The Japanese people will never forget all the help that the United States provided when Japan was devastated by the Great Tohoku earthquake and tsunami which took place on Mar. 11, 2011, and we’d like to take this opportunity to repay your generosity. The books are our silent ambassadors. And we hope everything is restored as soon as possible, and that the people of Queens enjoy our books,” said Kumi Shimizu, general manager, Kodansha USA Publishing.
