Backpacks for Kids Fundraiser Update

Thank you everyone for your tremendous support of the Library’s “Backpacks for Kids” fund raising campaign!  Would you believe that we have raised almost $500.00 in cash already and collected approximately $250.00 worth of school supplies!

While this response has been great, we still have a little way to go to meet our target of delivering 50 complete backpacks to the Calgary Board of Education.

The items we are most in need of at this time are backpacks, 2″ binders, packages of loose leaf paper, basic math sets, and very basic 4-function calculators.  Scissors, rulers, glue sticks are welcome too!

If you haven’t yet donated and would still like to, we will be collecting supplies and cash donations for a few more weeks.  Donations can be dropped off at the Circulation Desk in the library.

Thank you so much for your support!
