Water park collects books for Friends of the Library
CoCo Key Indoor Water Park of Rockford will be conducting a special promotion this spring to help raise money for the Friends of the Rockford Public Library.
“CoCo’s Spring Book Drive,” which began April 29, offers $5 off admission for the day to the indoor water park with a donation of a new or gently-used book. The promotion will run every Sunday through the end of May.
Organizers of “CoCo’s Spring Book Drive” hope to collect more than 1,000 books. The books will be donated to the Friends of the Rockford Public Library, which will sell them at their book shops at the East State Street and Wyman Street branches of the library.
All the money collected from the book sales will go to the library in the form of grants. Any books that can’t be used are given to Better World Books, an organization that helps provide books to needy people around the world.
For each book donated, guests will receive $5 off admission to CoCo Key Indoor Water Park. One discount will be applied per admission, with a limit of four discounted admissions per family per visit.
Organizers are asking that books be either new or in very good condition to qualify for the discount. The discount must be used at the time of donation, no coupons or vouchers will be issued.
