The Book For Every Child fundraiser keeps on growing.
In the spirit of giving this holiday season, the Fort Saskatchewan Public Library raised $3614 to put books into the local food bank Christmas hampers, for kids of all ages.
"It's wonderful, I think when the community comes together and supports each other, this is what happens. Everyone helps each other out and I think the result is just something bigger than what each of us can do individually," said Michele Feser, library director.
Each year, the library partners with Co-op to run the fundraiser in store. Paper light bulbs with names of those who donated were strung up at the Co-op.
The fundraiser ran for the month of November.
