October 16 – October 30

For the third year, Cornwall Public Library is hosting an event called The Great Give Back. Through this statewide initiative, the library is providing an opportunity for public library patrons to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences.

This year’s project is a pantry drive for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley. The following items (not just food) are particularly needed:
  • Peanut Butter
  • Cereal
  • Canned Tuna/Chicken
  • Canned Fruit/Vegetables
  • 100% Juice
  • Canned Soups/Meals
  • Pasta/Rice
  • Soap/Shampoo/Conditioner
  • Toothbrushes/Toothpaste
  • Bathroom Tissue
  • Paper Towels
  • Person/Feminine Products
  • Diapers
  • Deodorant

As added incentive, we will waive $1 of overdue fines for every item donated.
