Our interim director, Marilyn Kiwk, lent us the space outside her office for the sizable food contributions.
Food for Fines: final count

Thank you to everyone who pitched in for our Food for Fines efforts. While the total food count has not yet been tallied (non-fine related donations have not yet been counted), we were able to collect 1,974 food items aimed toward fines, totalling $2,857.30 in reduced fines for our patrons. With our final food run to come early next week, we are projecting donations of over 1 ton (2000 pounds!) of food. Great job, Westland! This program shows how doing the little things adds up to an enormous contribution for the community at large. Have a safe and happy New Year!

Note: the final delivery occurred today (1/6/11) and our grand total of donated food came to 2,800 pounds! Unbelievable job, Westland. We've set the mark to beat in coming years.

Lunar eclipse tonight

If any of you happen to be awake at 1:30am tonight make sure to look up at the sky: tonight the Earth's shadow will cover the moon, creating a lunar eclipse.  The moon will still be visible but will appear red as a result of the indirect light shining off of it.  Neat, eh?
