We’re In the News! Book Drive Update!

Well, it’s been an exciting week for the Hastings Diversity Book Drive – let’s get updated on all that’s happened….

https://www.citynews1130.com/2021/05/01/hastings-diversity-book-drive/

Orca Book Publishers heard about our book drive and has donated $200 for our librarian to use toward any of the books that they publish! https://www.orcabook.com/Home.aspx 

And local, young author Esabella Strickland, has donated a signed copy of her fantasy novel about a girl with a learning disability to our library! https://www.genzpublishing.org/product/orabella-the-oracle-1-then-and-there-here-and-where/ 

Our total funds raised so far is $1100(!!), including the donation from Orca Books. Our goal is $4000 by May 14th – that’s the end of next week! Let’s see if we can get there!
 

Ways to donate:
    1.    Visit Iron Dog Books at 2671 E Hastings St and purchase one of the librarian pre-selected books OR contribute to the in-store Hastings Book Drive account (no donation is too small!).
    2.    Contribute using the School Cash Online donation form (select Hastings PAC as the fund destination and note that it is for the book drive in the message section).
And keep those book suggestions coming, by using this form! Over 140 incredible books have been suggested so far. Wow – what a week! Let’s keep it up Hastings!
