OVERDUE FINES WAIVED WITH FOOD PANTRY DONATION DURING LIBRARY WEEK

National Library Week (April 13-19) is a time to celebrate the contributions of libraries and librarians and the perfect time to discover this year’s theme, “Lives Change @ your library."  The Plainville Public Library is celebrating by waiving overdue fines on its books for any patrons who make a contribution to the Plainville Food Pantry at the library.  Items needed especially are: cereal, juice bottles, canned soup or pasta, canned tuna, laundry detergent, shampoo, toilet paper and cleaning supplies.  A special laundry basket will be set up at the circulation desk to receive the donations.

       Libraries today are more than repositories for books and other resources. Often the heart of their communities, libraries are deeply committed to the places where their patrons live, work and study.  Libraries are trusted places where everyone in the community can gather to reconnect and reengage with each other to enrich and shape the community and address local issues.

       First sponsored in 1958, National Library Week is a national observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA) and libraries across the country each April.
