Troopons® — Coupons for Troops October 1-15 The Support Our Troops® Troopons® program enhances the well-being of overseas and domestic military families by sending them food, non-food, baby, and pet manufacturer coupons to make their hard-earned dollars go farther.
The Giving Fence October 1, 2022 – April 1, 2023 Every year, we help our neighbors in need by accepting donations of new or gently used hats, scarves, mittens, gloves and socks. We’ve received donations from individuals and from groups. These items are hung on the fence outside the library. Anyone is free to take what they need. The program goes on all through the winter months, helping to keep our community warm.
