Warm Some Hands and Hearts This Season

Bingham Creek Library's annual drive for warm clothing to donate to The Road Home is going on now. Bring in hats, scarves, socks, mittens/gloves, etc to decorate our Christmas tree! The shelter needs articles in all sizes, because they provide services to entire families.

This is a wonderful opportunity to share with the less fortunate members of our community at this special (and cold) time of year.
