Bucks for Books!

Help out Grand Forks Public Schools!

Greater Grand Forks Young Professionals (GGFYP) is asking fellow community members to donate a buck or a Benjamin to the ‘Bucks for Books’ drive, an effort to help restock local school libraries. The fundraiser will run through Nov. 23.

The Library system of Grand Forks Public Schools has encountered some challenges in the wake of the COVID pandemic. When students were sent home to learn remotely, library books were quarantined at home with them. When classes resumed in person, many of those books never made their way back. Additionally, COVID created strain on public school funding, allowing fewer dollars to replace those forgotten books. GGFYP would like to help refill those shelves!
