Giving Tuesday has become to charities what Black Friday is to retailers and Cyber Mondays is to internet businesses.  If you would like to give, please consider the Learning Center Food Pantry, as well as the Paperback Book Drive for Kent County Jail Readers.  Whether it is food and sundries, or new or used paperbacks, you can donate them at the Circulation Desk of the Library.

Thanks for your support!
