About this Article

Kayla Dunlea's books cover the kitchen table from one end to the other at her home in Wayne. But they aren't really Kayla's books. Not anymore. On Friday, she donated all of them to the DuPage Family Shelter in Wheaton. Kayla's project, which she calls Words for Women, started with the goal of providing popular novels for women at the shelter in Wheaton. When she discovered it was a family shelter, she went on to include children's books in her collection.
