The Haltom City Public Library has recently awarded 700 book bags along with 700 assorted books to the employees of Hillshire Foods Company. A big "Thank you!" goes out to the Friends of the Library for providing the books and purchasing the book bags. The employee reading program is a collaborated effort between the library and Hillshire Foods to encourage the employees to read for pleasure and to share the experience with younger members of their families.
Haltom City Public Library has a small on-site library at Hillshire Foods for use by the empoyees. We also urge employees to acquire a library card at their local libraries. This allows them a wider assortment of available literature and valueable information.
