Library Fights Hunger With Backpack Bob

Library Fights Hunger With Backpack Bob

This summer, the Children’s Room at the Maplewood Library is teaming up with Rent Party to help fight hunger for local kids and families.

Donate non-perishable snacks and food in the bin by the entrance of the Main Library. Suggested items include non-refrigerated dinners like Kraft macaroni and cheese cups or Healthy Choice soups, 100 percent juice boxes and shelf stable milks, low sugar cereal and cereal bars, snacks like peanut butter crackers, cheese crackers, raisins, fruit snacks, etc.

Picking up a Backpack Bob (Flat Stanley’s cousin) at the library to decorate and take pictures. Whether at Maplewood Village, at camp, or on vacation, take pictures of Backpack Bob and send them to and those adventures will be shared on the library and Rent Party websites to help raise awareness.

Be a local hero and help Rent Party and the Maplewood Library fight hunger!
