Acord Food Pantry

If you have visited the library recently you may have noticed a shopping cart parked in the Children's Room (thank you Crosby's Market). We invite you to drop off non-perishable items for the Acord Food Pantry. The cart will remain through December. Please note the Acord Food Pantry cannot accept expired food of any kind. Thank you in advance for your kindness. Your donations will make a timely difference in helping local families in need. Let's see how many times we can fill it!
