The Great Give Back 2022

The Great Give Back*
Collection for Sleep in Heavenly Peace

Thursday, September 15 - Saturday, October 15

Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a local volunteer organization that builds beds for kids. We’ll be collecting new (in original  packaging) twin sheet sets, comforters, and pillows appropriate for ages 3-17. The library will also accept monetary donations to build beds. Visit for more information. 

*The Great Give Back was created by New York State libraries to provide a day of opportunities for patrons to participate in meaningful, service-oriented experiences.
