Food for Fines: Week 4

We are rolling right along with food donations for Gleaners Food Bank. We have more than we can count at this point, but current estimates have us at 1500 food items and over $1600 in forgiven fines. We should break 2000 food items, no problem. Thank you so much, Westland and patrons from surrounding communities! You've done us all proud. 

We have 8 more days of this program, so if you haven't taken advantage of it yet or would like to donate food to a good cause, stop by the library anytime during our operating hours (Mon-Thur, 9-9; Fri-Sat, 9-5; Sun, 12-5). Happy holidays to all!

Food for Fines: 3rd week

Nearly 3 weeks in and Food for Fines is still going strong. To date, we have received over 1200 non-perishable, unexpired food items and have forgiven over $1,000 in fines. We have already reached our original goal (thanks for helping us obliterate that) and we're moving a lot closer to our second goal of 1,500 food items. Stop in anytime between now and the end of the day December 23rd to get your fines reduced (if you're late to the party, the equation you want to know is: one non-perishable, unexpired food item = $2 reduction in fines).

We meet the last Tuesday of each month at 7, and the next meeting is Jan. 25th. Have a say in YA by helping us plan programs, pick out books, and design book displays for the Teen Area.

If you're interested, stop in at the library and fill out a short registration form, or simply pick one up at the next meeting.

We'll feed you dinner at each meeting!
