Always Collecting

collecting personal care items for Family Service Society in May

Always Collecting

Each month, the Library will collect items for an organization. If you have an annual need (you always collect socks in the fall, school supplies in June, etc), let us know and we'll try to meet your request. 

How can your organization get involved?

Requests will be taken on a first come first served basis; if multiple groups have the same need within the same time frame, we will make every effort to distribute collected items to all agencies. We may not be able to fulfill every request; we will work to ensure that we collect as much for as many organizations as is feasible. 

Due to the Library's limited capacity, we ask that organizations be able to pick up donations at least once a week or when requested.

How do I get started?

Please email Adult Services Manager Lea Wentworth ([email protected]) with the following information:

  • Organization name
  • Contact information
  • What your organization is collecting
  • The time of year your organization collects (preferred month if possible)
  • Any other additional information (ideal start/end dates, information we can include on our social media)
