Food for Fines: week 2

We challenged you all to step up and help us in the fight against hunger and you have: to date we have received donations totaling over 500 food items and have forgiven over $400 in late fines- and we're only a week and a half in. At this rate, I think we can forget about our original goal of 1,000 food items and instead shoot for 1,500 donated food items. People in the community have quite generous in their giving as food items donated are outnumbering late fines (given the incentive, it could be the other way around). We're grateful for your support everyday.

Food for Fines update

We are on our way to 1,000 donated items: just in our first two days we collected over 100 items and forgave over $150 in fines. Help us reach our weekly goal of 250 donated items by stopping in today, Saturday or Sunday. We accept non-fine related donations as well as monetary donations (a $1 donation can serve 3 meals for someone in need). Happy Thanksgiving!

Job Seekers Lab cancelled Wednesday and Friday, will return next week

The Job Seekers Labs for Wednesday night and Friday afternoon are cancelled, as the library will be closed at these times for the Thanksgiving holiday.  The library will reopen Saturday morning with public computers available for anyone needing computer access to work on a resume, search for jobs, or file for unemployment (or do anything else, really) and the JSL will return Tuesday morning.  Happy holidays!
