BOSTON GLOBE DEDICATES CHILDREN'S LIBRARY AT THE KIRK SCHARFENBERG HOUSE IN MATTAPAN

 BOSTON, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Boston Globe Publisher William O. Taylor today presented the first grant from the Kirk Scharfenberg Memorial Book Fund to establish The Boston Globe Children's Library at the Kirk Scharfenberg House in Mattapan, part of the City of Boston's Children's AIDS Program.
 The Scharfenberg House, dedicated by the City of Boston last year, is the nation's first public residential facility for children born with the HIV virus. It is named in honor of former Boston Globe editor Kirk Scharfenberg, who died of cancer last July at the age of 49.
 The Scharfenberg Memorial Book Fund, established by the Globe in 1992, provides an annual grant of $1,000 from the paper to city schools K-12 to purchase children's books.
 Accepting the gift were Judith Kurland, Commissioner of Health and Hospitals for the City of Boston, and Thelma Hyatt, executive director of the Schafenberg House. Scharfenberg family members were also in attendance for the presentation.
 Besides the $1,000 gift, Taylor presented a plaque establishing The Boston Globe Children's Library at the house.
 The inscription read "Established in memory of The Boston Globe's Kirk Scharfenberg, to commemorate his love of books and passion for education, so that youngsters may know the excitement and adventure of reading."
