100 Ways to Give with #GRCC

As part of GRCC’s 100 Ways to Give project, the Library & Learning Commons and the Criminal Justice department are teaming together to collect books for Kent County Jail inmates.  Visit the Library anytime between September 1 and October 31 to drop off your books.  We can accept new or used paperbacks – the men and women at the facility are looking forward to new reading material!
