Instead of their annual book sale, the Friends of Hershey Public Library are trying new ways to engage the community and raise money for the library.
A read-a-thon is taking place through the site 99pledges. Community members can create an account and ask friends and family to sponsor them as they track their reading through Beanstack. As of July 17, $830 have been raised! Find more information about the read-a-thon here.
In addition, they're holding a Hershey Public Library Virtual Race! Registrants can sign up to walk, run, bike, swim, or any other method of exercise in order to get a finisher medal and race bib. The distance is customizable from 1 mile to 100! $5.00 from each registration goes to the library. More information can be found here.
