Some of the nonperishable food items available at the library's community pantry
The community pantry stocks some perishable food items, too
Library holding library card contest through September
The Union County Library System needs your help in keeping their new Community Pantry stocked. They can accept both non-perishable and perishable foods, but nothing frozen, please. They also accept hygiene products. If you would like to donate items, bring them to the library during business hours. The library is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30-6 except for being closed from 12-1 for lunch. It is also open from 9-3 on Friday. You may also buy things from their Amazon wish list and have them shipped directly to the library. The link to the list is https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/genericItemsPage/33B7J7PTK28Q8.
September is National Library Card Sign-Up Month. To encourage citizens to sign up for a card and to show pride in already having a library card, the library is holding a contest. Those who sign up for a library card from September 1-30 or who take a selfie with their library card and post it to the library’s social media or email to email@example.com will be entered for a chance to win a prize bag of goodies or a new Kindle Paperwhite. There is a limit of one entry per person, and entries must be received by October 1.
