Everyone gives near the holidays, unfortunately hunger isn’t seasonal, and come summer local food pantries have empty shelves. The Library is pleased to partner with the Kingston Food Pantry to collect non-perishable and non-expired food and toiletry items in lieu of current fines for the entire month of July!
