Library Coat Drive

This year, Ainsworth Memorial Library is participating in "The Great GIve Back" community service initiative with a coat drive.
Give the gift of warmth! We are collecting clean, gently used coats for all ages and sizes for our coat drive on October 19th from 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Please drop off your coat at the library during this time. We will be re-distributing the coats to those in need of a warm coat at the library from October 21st-26th.
The mission of "The Great Give Back" is to provide a day of opportunities for patrons of Public Libraries in NYS to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences.
