The mission of the Supplemental Emergency Assistance Program (SEAP) is to provide assistance, through member agencies, to help meet the crisis or extraordinary needs of individuals and families of the Quad Cities who have exhausted all other means of available financial aid.

In 1989, a group of local people working in the field of direct social services met to discuss ways of providing additional money to help assist persons in crisis. Those involved recognized that there were a number of avenues of assistance already available and that these needed to be fully utilized. However, there was a general consensus that there are occasions when the full amount of help that is needed may not be available. For that reason, the group applied for a grant through the Doris and Victor Day Foundation to set up SEAP. The grant was approved and the program officially began in January 1990. The program assists individuals and families with crisis needs. The funds are used after other community resources have been exhausted, for any persons living in the Quad Cities Area, without discrimination. An agency must apply to and be approved by the SEAP membership. SEAP is a 501(c)(3) organization. All funds are received through grants, individual donations and fundraising events.

Cedar Rapids Public Library Book Sale: Recycled Books Help More Than Mother Earth

Cedar Rapids – October 22, 2012 – It’s easy to call Mother Earth a tree hugger.  After all, she has a vested interest in saving the planet.  Anything that will “reduce, reuse, or recycle” is high on her list.  So it’s no surprise she’s a big fan of the Annual Book Sale, sponsored by the Friends of the Cedar Rapids Public Library.

“It’s the most intellectually stimulating recycling program in the City of Cedar Rapids!” Mother says.  “Where else can you spend so little money for such a big gain?  Kids win; adults win; and the Public Library wins!”

This year’s book sale will be held in the former Von Maur store’s first floor at Westdale Mall on Cedar Rapids’ west side.  The 3-day sale opens on Friday, October 26 with early admission to the entire sale for $20 per person at 4 p.m., followed by general admission from 5 – 9 p.m. for $5 per person.  Admission on Saturday the 27th is $3 per person during the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  There is free admission on Sunday; sale hours run noon – 4 p.m.  Children 12 and under are admitted free on Friday and Saturday.

All purchases support the literacy programs of the Friends of the Cedar Rapids Public Library.
