The Williams County Public Library in Bryan and its branches in Edgerton, Edon, Pioneer, Stryker, and West Unity will be collecting donated mittens, gloves, scarves and hats to give to the needy during the month of December in an effort to give back to the communities that support them. The library will be accepting these items for a Mitten Tree at each of its locations. All items donated to the Mitten Trees will be given to local charities within each community.
Any patron who brings in an item for the Mitten tree to donate to charity will be given a coupon to pay off up to $1.00 in overdue fines. Please help us decorate our Mitten Trees and help those in need at the same time by bringing new pairs of mittens, gloves, scarves, or hats to the libraries to donate.
The following restrictions on the Mitten Tree coupons will apply. These coupons will not be valid toward the payment of lost items or toward the debt collect fee. These coupons will not be redeemable for cash, and no change will be given if the fine being paid is less than the coupon value amount. The coupons will have an expiration date of March 31, 2013. For questions or further information on this program, please contact the library at 419-636-6734.
