Please place your donations in the collection box located near the front entrance of the library by March 15.

    Supplying these items to the shelters will help them direct their limited resources to providing qualified staff, counseling, food and shelter to those they serve. The most requested items include laundry detergent, garbage bags, dental and hair care items, diapers and baby care and tissue. Your donations will remain in this community.
