The holidays will be brighter for many families thanks to the generosity of our library users and community partners.  We were able to donate 826 books to Wheeling Township’s holiday Adopt-a-Family program.  We would like to thank everyone who contributed.  Special thanks go to Rolling Green Nine-Hole Golf League, American Legion Auxiliary Post #208; and our community partners: Tuscan Market & Wine Shop, Mariano’s Fresh Market, California Pizza Kitchen, Northwest Speech and Hearing Center at Northwest Community Hospital, California Pizza Kitchen, and the Chamber of Commerce Professional Women’s Council.

Since we have started the book drive in 1998, we have donated 13,111 books to children in need. Thanks for helping provide the gift of literacy in our community during the holidays.
