Harrison County Public Library is helping to bring awareness to food insecurity during September for Hunger Action Month through book displays at the Corydon and Palmyra branches. Dare to Care Community Activation Manager Heather Gotlieb reached out to the library for assistance and wrote, “We’re doing everything we can to make this month an all-hands-on-deck effort to let the community know how we can work together to end the cycle of hunger.”
