Bottles will help kids read in Fort St. James.
Thanks to a donation of $124 by Imperative Recycling, owned and operated by Kat Slorstad (shown on the right), the Fort St. James Bicentennial Library will now have a few more dollars in the Community Programming Fund.
The fund helps to purchase materials for some of the children’s programs the library runs, according to Diane Uhrich (left), head librarian.
Slorstad’s business offers a curbside recycling service and when people leave refundable items, for the month of June, Slorstad kept the refunds towards the donation.
She decided to donate the funds to the library because she thinks libraries are an important part of a community and she plans to bring her child there when he is old enough. Slorstad plans on making a donation of the refund money she collects every fourth month or so to a different local charity.
