The Library is collecting food for Hope Ministries, our local food bank. If you owe overdue charges here at the library, you may pay your bill with one nonperishable food item per dollar owed. You may also donate food items even if you do not owe overdue charges. It is my understanding that Hope Ministries is in great need of assistance in this manner. Let’s all pitch in and make a difference here at home. We are extending the program through January 30 to collect as much food as possible.

Preschool Story Time will be learning about numbers at their next meeting on Tuesday, January 25, at 10:00 am.
