It’s time to pony up! This year we are hosting our first ever Genre Derby to raise funds for the library collection. We want you to get in on the action!
Each of KDL’s eight adult fiction genres is represented by a horse. During the Genre Derby, you will be able to nudge your favorite horse past the others by donating funds to the library for purchasing books in your genre of choice. The Derby will continue through February. On March 4, the race will end with a finish line party at Vitale’s in Comstock Park and the winning genre will be crowned champion!
And here’s another reason to cast your vote and donate: Investment firm Edward Jones and First United Credit Union will both provide a 50 percent match up to $1500. See, even the financial gurus think the derby is a sound investment!
Whether you love mystery, sci-fi, romance or another genre, we would welcome and appreciate your support! Visit the Genre Derby website to join the fun! Scroll down to find the genre you want to support:
