Through the month of November the library's Teen Advisory Board is partnering with the Westland Goodfellows for a Toy and Food collection drive. Donated items will be given to Westland families who have applied for Christmas assistance this year through the Westland Goodfellows.

Please bring items you wish to donate to the library and place them in the appropriate donation box. Donation boxes are located in the library lobby outside the meeting rooms.
