We just ran our very first sweepstakes, the I Love My Library Sweepstakes. We offered entrants the chance to win a $100 Field Goods gift certificate, and we’d donate $500 to a library of the winner’s choice! It was heartwarming to see so much enthusiasm and love for libraries from our community and beyond.
AND THE WINNER IS…….. Lydia Romero, who chose to donate $500 to the Lewisboro Library!

Lydia volunteers at the Lewisboro Library. She’s excited for the library to use the donation for their programming, which “is always great and a lot of fun.” Lydia cares “about farmers and the food they grow because fresh veggies and fruit tastes SO much better. I can really tell the difference between just-picked produce compared to produce I buy in my supermarket.” She also LOVES the Field Goods selection!
Cindy Rubino found out about Field Goods 6 years ago, and opened up the Lewisboro Library as a Field Goods pick-up site because “it’s a great way to promote healthy eating and great food. Field Goods is one offering that’s really helped develop our goal to grow as a community center.” Cindy plans to use the donation for operating costs towards health programs and purchasing resources that promote wellness. In addition to books, crafts, movies, reading groups, painting, technology, and much more, this year the library focused their themes on the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, so they developed programs around space exploration. How cool?!
Thanks to everyone who participated. And huge thanks to all the libraries for your dedication to your communities!
