READ TO FEED A WIN-WIN PROJECT

Moore Memorial Library in Texas City is offering a program,
“Read To Feed,” that combines reading with raising
money for the Galveston County Food Bank. What a
great project and a win-win idea!
The library is offering its card holders of all ages the
opportunity to raise money ( $1 for every hour read) for
the county food bank. The money is being graciously
donated by an anonymous donor.
Here’s how it works. Participants must have a Moore
Library card and a reading log (available at the library
or by downloading it from the library’s website: www.
texascity-library.org). Participants then record their reading
times and dates, turning them in to the library by
February 14. Individuals will have their time added to the
grand total.
All reading materials – books, audiobooks and magazines
– count toward your reading time. Youngsters can
count four “read-to-me” books to earn one hour of time.
Isn’t this a great way to get in some more reading time
while at the same time helping people in our community
who are struggling to feed themselves and their families?
It won’t cost you a penny. If your total hours are 25, you
will be donating $25 to the county food bank. And if you
involve your youngsters, they’ll learn to help others while
improving their reading skills.
Great idea, generous anonymous donor, inspired fundraising
program. This is a wonderful way to start the new
year! For more information on Read To Feed, call the
Reference Desk at 409-643-5977.
While we’re talking about what’s going on at Moore
Memorial Library, don’t miss the program this Thursday,
January 18 at 1:30 pm.
It’s about trends in cyber crime, ranging from credit
card fraud to identity theft and romance scams to real
estate scams.
This important program will be presented by a Texas
City Police Department officer with an advanced certification
in computer and mobile forensics from the United
States Secret Service.
In today’s world technological advancement, while
adding great conveniences to our lives, has also allowed
criminals to reach us in new ways.
It’s really important
to remain vigilant
about our online lives
in order to be safe.
I highly recommend
this free program
to everyone.
Anyone can be a
cyber crime victim.
Don’t let this happen
to you.
For more information
on this program,
call the Reference
Desk at 409-643-
5977.
Hope to see you at
the library!
