Middlesex United Way Community Book Drive

June 1 to June 21, 2018

    Middlesex United Way is running a book drive for preschool students in our area. The idea is to get age appropriate books into the hands of these youngsters at an early age so that they are reading ready for school and will be reading at grade level by the end of 3rd grade. Bring in new books or books in good condition suitable for preschoolers like board books, easy readers, and simple picture books. There is a collection box by the circulation desk. Literacy Volunteers will be collecting books as well.
    The books will be distributed to Middlesex United Way funded partner programs and public and private child care centers throughout the county. Thanks for helping!!

                                         Big Fluffy Dog Rescue Donation Drive

Westbrook High School students Christine Banks and Kendra Mansey are running a drive in support of Big Fluffy Dog Rescue, a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing giant mixed breed dogs and finding them homes. Drop off donations through June 8 at the Library (collection box in the front lobby), Westbrook High School, Middle School, or Daisy Ingraham Elementary School. They are seeking new or used items in good condition like: Collars (esp. Martingales), bowls, crates, towels, blankets & sheets, toys, paper towels, flea & tick deterrents, cleaning supplies, treats (but no rawhides). This is a National Honor Society project.
