“Close the Book on Hunger 2015”
The library staff loves giving back to their community and encouraging others to do the same! We are again gearing up to launch our Book on Hunter”, which will be held during the entire month on April, in coordination with National Library Week.
Last year, the most successful drive ever was held and the great people of our community donated 1,321 non-perishable food items which staff happily delivered to six food pantries throughout the county.
The library gives thanks to those who donate in two ways. For each item donated, a gift certificate is given for a “free” book from The Knox County Friends of the Library monthly book sale and patrons who have overdue book fines may have $1.00 in fines forgiven for each item.
Look in your pantries and into your heart during April to help us ease the worry of food insufficiency for our neighbors.
