HACAP partners with Hiawatha Public Library
by Cynthia Petersen Correspondent · October 31st, 2016

Hiawatha Public Library is partnering with HACAP this fall to present a reading program for all ages which encourages both reading and giving back to the community.

"Read to Feed" will be held Oct. 31 to Nov. 30 and will be divided into four sessions. Participants are asked to read 60 minutes and to donate one non-perishable item during a session to receive rewards.

HPL will host special events throughout the month, asking for canned good donations. Local author, Charlotte Gunnufson, helps kick off the program Oct. 31 at 4:30 p.m. by teaching kids, "The Halloween Hustle." Kids can wear their costumes to the program and trick or treat afterwards. Those attending are asked to bring a non-perishable food item.

The adult department will host a Scrabble Marathon Nov. 5, beginning at 1 p.m., until players run out of words. Participants must arrive before 5 p.m. to get in on the action. A non-perishable item is requested for entrance into the marathon. The library will provide a snack in the afternoon (pizza or sandwich).

'Pete the Cat's Rocking Thanksgiving Visit' will be held Nov. 12 at 10:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Those attending are asked to bring a non-perishable item.

During the month-long event, the library will forgive overdue library fines in exchange for canned good donations; $1 will be credited for each item received.

Readers can pick up their logs Oct. 31. For more information, visit the library's Facebook page.
