RPL Participates in 2007 Fall Literacy Program
Library partners with The Illinois Literacy Foundation, Secretary of State Jesse White and Borders Super Stores to support literacy programs
Rockford Public Library, in conjunction with The Illinois Literacy Foundation, Secretary of State Jesse White and Borders Super Stores, is participating in this fall’s 2007 Literacy Donation program. Customers who visit the Borders Store at 199 Deane Drive in Rockford from September 26 through October 21 will be asked at the time of their purchase to make a $1 donation in support of literacy programs in Rockford. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the library. Last year, Rockford Public Library received $664.00 in gift cards which were used at Borders to purchase books for the library.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Borders and the Illinois Literacy Foundation in this fundraising effort and appreciate their support of literacy and the Rockford Public Library,” said Renee Jensen, Development Officer at Rockford Public Library.
