The Great Barrington Libraries announce a "Spring Into Reading" community fundraiser. For each book read by a community member, the Friends of the Great Barrington Libraries will donate $1 to The People's Pantry, up to $500.

Participants can track their books using the Beanstack App. Visit gblibraries.org for more information on Beanstack, and for help accessing e-books.

To become a matching donor for this initiative, contact Holly Hamer at hhamer3143@yahoo.com.

Individuals are also encouraged to donate to the People's Pantry over and above participation in this community effort by volunteering time, food, and/or money, as well as to the Friends of the Great Barrington Libraries.
