Good Indeed! A "Novel" Idea
Good Indeed! A “novel” way for a School Library to help students “pay it forward.” Hamilton Southeastern Junior High School Library doesn’t charge monetary fines for student’s overdue books. Instead, the Library asks students to donate one canned good, or other non-perishable food item, for every week a book is overdue. The Library donates the food to the Delaware Township Food Pantry. One student came into the Library, recently, with four food items and said, “This is in case I have another overdue book!” So far this school year, Hamilton Southeastern Junior High’s Library has collected 2,000 items of food. Good Indeed!
