GREENFIELD — School officials had their pick of the literature this week at the Friends of the Hancock County Public Library’s first book giveaway.
Friends of the Library, a volunteer organization, raises funds to support library programs and other needs that fall outside the library’s annual budget. Twice per year, the group holds a book sale for the public to raise money for the library. Monday, the event took on yet another purpose.
At the conclusion of the public sale, Greenfield-Central School Corp. educators were invited to take any of the remaining books they felt could be useful to local elementary school students – free of charge.
