From Brad Matthies, Casper College Goodstein Foundation Library Director
The Casper College Goodstein Foundation Library recently held its annual book drive with the Wyoming Food For Thought Project.
Wyoming Food For Thought collects and distributes weekly food bags to K-12 Natrona County students in food-insecure situations. For the third year the Casper College Library partnered with Food For Thought to draw attention to these food-insecure situations and also to share the the gift of reading.
Over the winter break, Food For Thought sends home extra food to some 800 families in need. The library’s goal for the 2016 book drive was to send home at least one book to each of those 800 families.
This year the Casper College Library exceeded its goal by collecting over 1,200 books — enough that some children will receive two books!
