Amnesty Days at the Library
We are having “Amnesty Days” beginning Monday, December 2 through Friday, December 20. The Southeast Linn Food Pantry is currently in need of toiletry items. Items in this category are toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, shampoo, toilet paper and cleaning supplies. For every item you bring in to the library, we will remove $3.00 off your library fines. If you don’t have any library fines you can still make a donation.
Holiday Book Sale
To help you stretch your holiday shopping dollars, Cole Library will be selling books in “like new” condition on the third floor. Perfect for the bibliophiles on your list! Each year we receive donations of several titles in mint condition. We have been collecting these books and now are ready to offer them to you for $2.00 a book. The proceeds from the sale will be used for library programs in the New Year. The books are located on the library’s third floor behind the information desk.
