Just a reminder to all about 3 programs we have going on. First is our “That’s My Brick Fundraiser” the library is sponsoring. If you go to www.therichardslibrary.com, then to the Public Resources menu; info concerning the fundraiser is listed at the bottom of the page. The brick costs $50 and you can have it engraved with a message, family name, individual name, in memory of a beloved family member. You can also have a graphic added free of charge (unique logos are extra). They would make a GREAT CHRISTMAS present (hint, hint), or anniversary, birthday or any occasion a special gift is called for. If you have any questions, call us at 518-623-3011.
Next is our FOOD FOR FINES program. For every non-perishable item of food you bring in, we will deduct $1 from your fines. This program runs through Dec. 10th. All donations will go to the First Presbyterian Church’s Food Pantry.
Finally, is our participation in OPERATION SANTA CLAUS. We are looking for donations of NEW books for toddlers through Young Adults. The books donated/collected will go to Florence LaPoint and her yearly collection for Operation Santa Claus for Warrensburg. This runs through Dec. 12th.
Thank you to all for your support!!!
