Upcoming events at Northmont Branch Library

ENGLEWOOD — The Northmont Branch Library continues to collect food for FISH (Friends in Service for Humanity) food bank here in Englewood. Bring any non-perishable food items and put them in our designated tub. We also have a collection box for glasses for the Lion’s Club where you may bring unused glasses for those who need them.

The Toys for Tots campaign has begun. Bring a new toy for those who need them to the Library until December 12.

We always have a book sale going at the branch. The money from this book sale stays with the Northmont Branch Library and helps to fund different items for the branch. Come; look through some really interesting books, and other items and support your branch library. Prices range from 50 cents to $5.
