Well, the short answer is because we were asked. The fine folks behind the upcoming Freeland Film Festival (June of 2018, right here in downtown Green Lake) are collecting gently used shoes and work boots that will be given to people in need of decent footwear. If there are a pair (or three) taking up space in your home, too good to toss out, please consider bringing them in to the library on your next visit. They can be sneakers or sandals, work boots or "nice shoes for work" for kids or grownups. We will have a collection box in the library lobby until Thanksgiving.
Thank you for giving.
