Book charity

Wednesday 02 December 2020

Donate your book to the NHL Stenden Library Leeuwarden for the charity Sociaal Goud (Social Gold) to improve the well-being of the elderly in Friesland.

This year isn’t going the way we expected it to, and so at the NHL Stenden Library we will also have to adjust. Because of this we had to cancel our yearly book market, but we do have something else in store!

During the holidays this year, a large part of the elderly in Friesland expects to be alone. They are unable to visit their family and their family can’t visit them. To let these people know we are thinking of them, the NHL Stenden Library works together with non-profit organization Sociaal Goud (Social Gold) to collect books for them!

Around the holidays, Sociaal Goud will pay the lonely elderly a visit to bring them some holiday cheer. To give them something extra for the holidays, we want to give each of them a novel to get through the holidays.

We need your help for this! We are looking for novels to give out. Do you have books you want to donate for this? You can donate them at the NHL Stenden Libraries on Rengerslaan 8 or Rengerslaan 10 in Leeuwarden together with a nice holiday wish (cards are available in the Library). Let’s help the elderly feel less alone!
