For the sixth year, Casper College Goodstein Foundation is partnering with Wyoming Food for Thought for its Annual K-12 New Book Drive.
Wyoming Food for Thought distributes weekly bags of food to K-12 students who are in food-insecure situations to get them through the weekend. Donations to the library book drive add a new book (ages K-12, all genres) to the winter food bag over the holiday break for the child or teen to keep, read, and treasure. Nonperishable food items are also appreciated.
The library’s goal is 800 books. In addition to drop-off points around the Casper College campus, they have an Amazon wish list for those who might want to contribute from a distance. Every title on the wish list is a Wyoming book award nominee.
The Goodstein Library sponsors its book drive to support Casper College’s mission of community building, literacy, and lifelong learning. They also use this event to draw attention to the problem of food-insecure families in Natrona County.
