Forest City, Iowa – Continuing Waldorf College’s tradition of service, the Luise V. Hanson Library will be selling used books from various collections to raise money for Waldorf’s annual Kids Against Hunger food packaging event. The sale begins on February 11 and continues for three weeks until March 1.
“We’d been planning on having a book sale to make room for our new materials, so it just made sense to align it with fundraising for Kids Against Hunger,” said User Services Librarian Lisa Eggebraaten. “It’s a great way to make a difference in the lives of hungry children.”
In addition to books, items like old records, puzzles and CDs will also be sold. Everything will be priced at 25 cents–the cost to package one meal for Kids Against Hunger.
“This is a great opportunity for the community to come visit our library and take something home,” Eggebraaten said. “The items for sale can also be used for crafts or creating something cool you saw on Pinterest.”
Waldorf’s annual Kids Against Hunger food packaging event will take place on Wednesday, March 6 from 2 to 7 p.m. Food packed at Waldorf has gone to countries around the world including Haiti and Tanzania.
