THE BRONX - A Bronx couple wants the short life of their daughter to become a never-ending story that can inspire other families.

The parents of Magnolia Sibley-Wilson set up a book fund with the New York Public Library just days after she died in her sleep. They say the 22-month-old girl loved books, and now they're helping to share that love by buying books for Bronx library branches.

The fund has already raised $30,000 in Magnolia's memory to fill empty bookshelves. Her parents also plan to start a school distribution to give books to families with newborns.
