The Great Give Back

September 13 to October 16

The mission of The Great Give Back is to provide a day of opportunities for the patrons of the Public Libraries of New York State to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences. The library will be participating in this state wide initiative by holding two collection drives. First, we will be collecting personal care items for the McGraw Community Food Pantry. The second collection is a coat drive. Coats will be distributed October 19th & 20th along with hats and mittens made by our Knit & Crochet group. Donations can be made during library hours.
