Outreach Department Gets New “Walking Books” Bags

Friday, March 7th, 2014
Outreach Department staff members Nancy Danielson, Linda Agee and Jan Miller show off the new "Walking Books" delivery bags, purchased with donor-restricted funds.

Outreach Department staff members Nancy Danielson, Linda Agee and Jan Miller show off the new “Walking Books” delivery bags, purchased with donor-restricted funds.

Thanks to our generous donors, The Library Foundation was able to make a grant to the Library’s Outreach Department to purchase new delivery bags for the Walking Books program.  This outreach program delivers library materials to patrons who cannot easily travel to the Library due to physical limitations.  Staff and volunteers deliver new materials on a monthly basis to patrons, based on their interests, and return items checked out from the previous month.

According to Allison Eckhardt, Outreach Department Manager, the Library was in desperate need of additional delivery bags, as some patrons have been receiving their materials in plastic grocery bags.  The Walking Books delivery bags are a heavily-reinforced synthetic fabric with sturdy handles and a zippered closure, bearing the Library’s screen-printed logo and “Walking Books” on one side.

The Library Foundation frequently accepts gifts from donors who have a specific Library program or service they wish to support.  Click here to make a donation today.

To find out more about the Library’s Walking Books program, or to volunteer to help, call Walking Books at 883-6112 Monday-Friday, 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.
