What a great community we live in! This year was our best year yet for donations to our Read and Feed Food Drive and Holiday Book Drive. Thanks to the amazing generosity of our library users, we were able to deliver:
 
3,438 food items to WheelingTownship. That’s 77 boxes at an estimated weight of 1,925 lbs!
 
293 pet items to the Buddy Foundation, including four 40-pound bags of dog food
 
839 books to WheelingTownship
 
We would like to thank everyone who contributed. You have made this holiday season much brighter for so many area families and pets. As always we had wonderful groups who collected for us. Special thanks go to:
 
American Legion Auxiliary
