8 Year Old Continues to Make His Own Splash for the Jersey City Free Public Library

Excerpt:   Paul Valleau is not a typical 8-year-old boy. While most other boys in Paul's neighborhood are playing video games or sports, Paul is raising money for the Jersey City Free Public Library system.

Thursday, Paul presented the library's director, Priscilla Gardner with a check for $1,212.84, money he earned from used book sales and a $400 donation.

"I wanted to do this because I just couldn't let the library close. I had to do something to help them," said Paul, who is homeschooled by his mother and grandmother. "So, I just came up with the idea to sell used books."

Now Paul has a Facebook account under the name Opus Jr. and people can visit the page to find out how to donate books
