Happy Monday, everyone!
Today kicks of the 3rd Annual New Book Drive that the library sponsors in conjunction with the Wyoming Food For Thought Project. The Food For Thought (FFT) Project collects and distributes weekly food bags to K-12 Natrona County students in food-insecure situations each Friday so that every student comes to school each Monday morning, full and ready to learn!
Over the long winter break, Food For Thought sends home extra food and this is the third year that we will also be adding a NEW grade-level appropriate book to the bags, but we can’t do it without your help.
What: a NEW book appropriate for kids in all grade levels
When: October 24th- December 2
Where: Drop off your books at the Gateway 3rd floor, library, Digital Learning Center, or the campus bookstore. The Tate Museum is also offering a discount on books purchased in its gift store, plus donating a book for every 10 sold- and they have some awesome books to choose from! We have locations around town, too: Wind City Books, HQ Barbecue, and Great Harvest Bread Co. If all else fails, call the library (268-2269) and we will come fetch your donations! We also have a Wish List to help you out!
Why: To share the gift of reading!
We really, really appreciate everyone who has donated in the past and look forward to working with you again!
Thank you so much!
