Food for Fines: ending numbers

Our Food for Fines program concluded on Saturday, March 31. We are happy to announce that although we did not reach our goals we were able to raise over 1500 food and bath items and forgive almost $1900 in fines. Thank you so much to everyone who participated- we're delighted that all of this will be distributed by Gleaners Community Food Bank throughout Southeastern Michigan to families and kids in need. Pat yourself on the back, Westland, for a deed well done!

World Book Night Reception

April 16, 6:30-8pm,Meeting Room B

World Book Night (WBN) is a celebration of reading and books and tens of thousands of people will spread the joy and love of reading by giving out free books on April 23 across the country. World Book Day began in the UK and has spread to Ireland, Germany, and now, in 2012, the U.S., so it is exciting to have the Public Library of Westland chosen as a distribution point.

The public  is invited to stop by for some light refreshments and find out how to be involved in future World Book Night book giveaways. Please check out the WBN website to find out more information and how you can receive information on how to be a book giver next year! http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/

Food for Fines: We need your help!

Food for Fines is nearly two weeks old and we are coming up short of our goals for the program. So far, we have received over 350 food or bath items and forgiven almost $500 in fines. Our goals for the month of March are 2,000 food items collected and over $3,000 fines forgiven. So we have our work cut out for us, but we can still do it. Head over to our Circulation desk if you have fines and receive $2 off for every non-expired (dated July 2012 or after) food item. And if you'd just like to give, call the Circulation for a list of some high-demand items. This program is only good through March, so hurry in. Thank you!
